Educational Directions is a nationally recognized consulting firm for independent schools and is an acknowledged leader in executive search.


Integrity, Personal Service, Excellence

We assist schools with their searches for heads of school and senior administrators. We advise schools in organizational development and governance.

Our independent school clients range from the very small to the very large and include boarding and day schools; coed and single sex; elementary, secondary and PK–12; rural, suburban and urban; secular and religious; college preparatory and special purpose; national and international.

We publish two subscription-based executive search reports. The Blue Sheet contains ads for head of school searches throughout the U.S. and internationally. The Green Sheet contains ads for administrator searches throughout the U.S. and internationally.

We have remained a small firm by design in order to provide our clients with the same personal and timely service on which we have built our reputation for excellence and as best practice leaders.
