  • Associate Head of School

    Crossroads School for Arts & Sciences, a K-12, coed day school in Santa Monica, California, seeks an Associate Head of School for July of 2020.

    Crossroads embraces a progressive, developmental model of education and distinguishes itself with a dynamic curriculum and array of programs. At every level, and in every aspect of school life—from the classroom to the sports fields, labs, studios, and stages— the School provides an environment in which students thrive. The School is deeply committed to equity and justice, inspiring its students to make a positive, lasting impact on the world.

    LEADERSHIP TRAITS AND QUALITIES

    Crossroads seeks an Associate Head of School who will continue to promote and ensure one-school alignment across three divisions and two campuses, steadfastly keeping a K-12 perspective for key decisions. Fostering collaborative decision-making, building consensus, and serving as a skilled diplomat will likewise be critical to managing competing agendas and “balancing the scales.”

    The School seeks a leader who will listen effectively and ask questions that drive the team toward clarity. The Associate Head of School will support the work of the three division directors, serve as a sounding board for the Head of School, and be a crucial link to the operational side of school life.

    Head of School Bob Riddle seeks a partner who understands progressive education and who has experience in a large, complex institution. The Associate Head of School will honor tradition, drive innovation, and recognize the tension that exists as Crossroads strives to evolve and move forward while honoring the rich traditions that have been built over Crossroads’ (almost!) five decade-long existence.

    The Associate Head of School will be a skilled diplomat with a well-developed sense of humor, an affirming presence and an abundance of curiosity. The right candidate will be a tireless, resilient, and enthusiastic advocate for equity and inclusion in all dimensions of school life.


    OPPORTUNITIES AND CHALLENGES 


    Crossroads completed an ambitious strategic plan in 2019; fifteen strategic initiatives will require significant leadership and involvement from the Associate Head:

    • Enhance student wellness
    • Reimagine the School’s use of time
    • Update School philosophy and core commitments
    • Cultivate a consistent culture of learning and continuous improvement
    • Enhance a sense of belonging and inclusion 
    • Develop a philosophy of learning spaces
    • Enhance performing arts program
    • Fortify the School’s equity and justice program
    • Develop an innovation center or a school within a school
    • Expand accessibility to Crossroads for the greater Los Angeles community
    • Cultivate a new professional human resources paradigm
    • Create a new financial model for the future
    • Plan strategic enrollment management 
    • Expand the School’s environmental sustainability 
    • Investigate faculty and staff housing options


    Supporting the three division directors will require a trusting bond, the efficient distribution of work, excellent communication, and a lively exchange of ideas. The School seeks an Associate Head who is an astute problem-solver who also comfortably delegates and anticipates how challenges can best be addressed.

    The School requires a leader who can hold the three divisions together and understand (and troubleshoot) the arc of learning as experienced by the students. Likewise, the Associate Head will need to be skilled at keeping the critical members of the administrative team—including directors of the offices of admission, business, and advancement—in close communication with one another and with the academic leadership of the School.

    TO APPLY

    Candidates interested in applying for the Associate Head of School position should submit a letter of interest, resume, writing sample/personal statement, and the names of four current references. Materials may be submitted in one of two ways:

    Online at: https://rg175.com/candidate/login

    OR

    Email cover letter, resume, and personal statement/writing sample in a PDF to: Tom Hudnut, Thudnut@hw.com; and Catherine Hunter, Cshunter33@gmail.com

    The deadline for receipt of full application materials is October 1, 2019.
