"We had worked with another firm before and just didn't feel that we got the level of service that we wanted. We wanted to go with somebody smaller who would give us more time, who would be on campus more, be more available to us, and really get to know the school. EC gave us the personal attention we wanted.”
– Lori Schoeneman, Board Chair, Parent, The Swain School, PA
We position schools for success.
Educators Collaborative is a full-service consulting firm for schools, providing many services in the areas of search, transition, and strategy. From Head of School and Senior Administrator searches to institutional evaluation and guidance on governance —from strategic and financial planning to admissions policy and conflict resolution— EC provides detailed, comprehensive services tailored to your school’s needs.
At the heart of every engaged and energized school is an effective leader, and supporting the work of that leader is a competent and committed senior leadership team. Whether you are a Board member looking to engage in the search for a new Head of School or a Head of School seeking a new administrator, EC is fully equipped to assist you with your high-stakes search. We know how important it is to get it right, and we know how to use a search as an opportunity to build community.
Just as critical as finding the right leader is ensuring they are supported in coming into the position. The months and years after a new leader is hired are critical. Many clients report that our support during the transition from one leader to another was an unexpected value that they did not anticipate.
People don’t plan to fail, they fail to plan. From strategic planning to governance—from leadership team assessments to coaching and mentoring—EC provides wrap-around support so your school can achieve its goals and live by its mission.
