At Carney, Sandoe & Associates, we believe there is nothing more important than helping schools recruit and retain exceptional faculty and leaders.

A Service for Schools

Since our inception in 1977, we have worked successfully with over 1,800 independent, private, boarding, and charter schools in 48 states and 32 countries to provide exceptional faculty recruitment, head of school search, and strategic consulting services.

In addition, our Catholic Schools Practice is uniquely powerful and focuses extensive resources and expertise on the rapidly changing leadership needs of Catholic institutions. We are knowledgeable about the requirements of high-performing, independent Catholic schools.

We take the time to learn the unique culture of each school, and we invest heavily in forming long-lasting relationships with our hiring contacts. Our recruitment process is a deeply personal one; we often visit our clients on campus to learn as much as we can about the inner workings of the organization.

Making the Match

The process of finding a job in education can be challenging and riddled with anxiety. Similarly, the task of finding inspiring faculty, or an outstanding new head of school, can feel overwhelming. At Carney Sandoe, we appreciate how important these responsibilities are, and we treat the process in a highly personalized and engaged manner.
