Head of School Search



The Education Group is made up of former educators dedicated to growing independent education. Their consultants and coaches bring over 30 years of knowledge and experience to each engagement. A curated network of candidates is personally vetted for success in the placement and search.
They collaborate with each search team, personalizing searches for the school in order to find the best leader. Their consultants are flexible, investing first in the search and service to the team.
Interested candidates should provide a resume, cover letter highlighting their interest in and qualifications for the position, statement of philosophy of leadership, and list of five (5) professional references with contact information, as a single attachment, by November 30, 2021. These materials should be sent to one of the following consultants.
