Head of School Search Update: 07/31/19

Village Community,

It has been a very productive summer as it relates to our search for the next Head of Village School. Throughout the summer, the Search Committee has been working diligently with our search consultants, Carney Sandoe & Associates, reviewing materials from a number of candidates.  Carney Sandoe has built an outstanding pool of candidates who come with great experience and diverse backgrounds.  We are on track with our timeline and are feeling confident in the process and potential outcomes.  As a next step, the Search Committee will be conducting face-to-face interviews with the goal of inviting a smaller subset of candidates to campus in September for the community to meet.  As always, confidentiality of the candidate pool is critical at this point in time, but we look forward to sharing more information with the community once we complete our interviews.

Meet Carney Sandoe & Associates!

We are thrilled to announce that we have hired Carney Sandoe & Associates to lead our Head of School search process. Carney Sandoe brings a wealth of knowledge about independent schools from their nearly 40 years of experience in placing school leaders, administrators, and educators both inside and outside of the United States.  They are a highly regarded firm and have successfully placed heads of school for several prominent independent schools in Los Angeles, including Brentwood School, The Center for Early Education, and St. Matthews.
