Meet Brian Duggan: Executive Director.

As the Executive Director of Top Score, I am responsible for overseeing all organizational operations to ensure that we fulfill our mission of Deep Learning Through Deep Relationships. If you have any questions or require assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me at I am always available to help and support you in any way I can.

Prior to joining Top Score, I served as the Head of School at Fusion Academy Alexandria, a private middle and high school in Alexandria, Virginia. As a first-generation college graduate, I am passionate about education and its ability to transform individuals and communities. This led me to join Teach For America, where I worked as a public school teacher, administrator, and leadership development coach.

I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science from the University of Oregon and a Master’s degree in Teaching from Hamline University. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, and chasing my 13-month-old son, Felix.
