Independent School Search Objective

I am called
to serve a small, college preparatory, independent, secondary, boarding school...
a school that is a community in more than name only,
a school where I can help students and faculty and the institution thrive,
a school where I, too, can learn,
a school my family will call home.


The ideal position...
will allow me to serve the school in a variety of roles tapping a variety of my skills.

The ideal school...
  • Will be small enough my Dunbar number is not exceeded, everyone knows everyone else, no one is lost, and every member of the community makes an impact.

  • Will be rigorous in approach, while meeting students where they are academically, and will prepare graduates for college and the ever-changing world ahead of them.

  • Will be progressive and create personalized, equitable, and intellectually challenging school; the school will be a place of powerful student learning where all students have the chance to reach their fullest potential.

  • Will be independent in nature and non-profit in structure.

  • Will have a diverse student body which mirrors, as well as can be done, the world around us.

  • Will be honest to its mission, aligned to the stated vision, and moving with integrity to serve the school's many stakeholders.

  • Will acknowledge that all adults in the school community teach by their very presence; will recognize, nurture, and support faculty development and empowerment.

Delivering on passion

My passion is for small schools; my passion is for community life; my passion is for making a difference in the lives of students; my passion is for creating institutions that deliver on their vision. If these passions are not enough, so be it.
