Head of School Search

We have assisted — with great success — over 350 head of school searches.

We follow the National Association of Independent Schools’ Principles of Good Practice for Independent School Search Committees and Search Consultants.

We affirm without reservation the principles and laws of equal opportunity in employment and will not discriminate against qualified candidates.

We understand that a head of school must be able to deliver a multiple bottom line: enrollment, fundraising, balanced budgets, teaching and learning outcomes, professional development, career advice, parenting advice — and be a trusted advisor to the students, faculty and community.

We work with schools on head of school succession planning up to three years in advance of an anticipated transition date.

We charge a fixed fee based on our time and the experience we bring to a search.
