The academy's 46-acre campus caters to families willing to pay anywhere from $22,400 a year for elementary school to up to $26,700 a year in tuition and fees for the high school. Petru, who headed Cape Cod Academy since 2011, was no longer working there as of Jan. 8, according to a letter sent to parents and faculty.

Phil Petru, Cape Cod Academy's head of school since 2011, is no longer working at the academy as of Thursday, according to a brief letter sent to parents and faculty the same day.

OSTERVILLE - Phil Petru, Cape Cod Academy's head of school since 2011, is no longer working at the academy as of Thursday, according to a brief letter sent to parents and faculty the same day. Petru was hired in late 2010 at the age of 38, to take over the private pre-kindergarten through 12th grade school in Osterville. Petru, who could not be reached for comment Friday, came from the public school sector, most recently working as principal of Medford Memorial Middle School in Medford, N.J., when Cape Cod Academy hired him. No one from the school would say why he was leaving so abruptly midway through the year. "We are writing to inform you that effective today, Phil Petru will no longer be acting as Head of School," stated the letter signed by David McGraw, chairman of the academy's board of trustees, and Catherine Cetta, the academy's associate head of school.
Petru was not leaving over "some incident," McGraw said.
That was when the school brought in Petru.
