Rachel Clouser



Assistant Head of Upper School, La Jolla Country Day School

La Jolla, CA

Rachel Clouser joined the LJCDS community in fall 2017 as the dean of academics and student life for students in Grades 9 and 10 after previously working at Brentwood School and The Webb Schools. Since then, Dr. Clouser has been named assistant head of Upper School for student life and faculty enrichment.

She loves seeing students both inside and outside of class as they challenge themselves academically, athletically and artistically. The school’s belief in inspiring greatness for a better world strongly resonates with Dr. Clouser, and she loves being a part of the Country Day community.

Her passion for literature stems from her love of books, mainly British literature that was inspired by her time studying abroad in Oxford, England and working in London after graduating from college. She earned her Bachelor of Arts in English (Cum Laude) from the University of San Diego and her Masters of Education from Lehigh University. She completed her doctoral work at the University of California, Los Angeles, earning a Doctorate of Education in Education Leadership.

When not at school, Dr. Clouser enjoys traveling and spending time with her husband, Martin, and their adorable puggles, Macallan and Lolita.
