William & Reed Academy was founded by 25-year veteran certified teacher and administrator Hunter Reed Cluthe. As a tribute to his parents, William Cluthe and Molly Reed, Hunter found the name "William & Reed Academy" quite fitting for a school that emphasizes independent thinking aligned with the values instilled by his parents, who truly valued education. William Cluthe graduated from Babson Business School and earned his M.B.A. at NYU while Molly Reed was a History and Political Science major at George Washington University.
