The recruitment firm's personalized, relationship-building approach aims to make long-term matches for schools and educators alike.



They are matchmakers of the highest order. Since 1977, Carney, Sandoe & Associates have assisted more than 1,800 independent, private, boarding, and charter schools in finding heads of school, administrators, and top-tier faculty. That’s 32,000 placements! CS&A also offers consulting services in the areas of long-range strategic planning, governance, and succession planning, as well as executive coaching. Their scope is international, with client schools across North America, Europe, and Asia.

To find best-fit leaders and educators for an independent school, Carney Sandoe immerses itself in the culture of each client school, diving into cultural and operational nuance – often visiting campus for a first-hand look. Whether the school is small and rural, large and at the hub of an urban center, faith-based or boarding, CS&A explores multiple dimensions to ensure a successful placement. Separate practice groups within the firm’s Leadership Search Group bring focused expertise. If yours is an international school or you need a dynamic development officer to move your school ahead, you can be assured CS&A will bring a knowledgeable team with deep experience and a vast network to the process.

From December through April, Carney Sandoe holds Hiring Conferences to connect candidates with schools that have open positions. Featuring 30-minute pre-scheduled interviews, both schools and applicants benefit from a quick and efficient process that maximizes their time and allows them to evaluate a variety of possible placements and candidates. This year, conferences will be held in Boston (including at the TABS Annual Conference), New York, Philadelphia (CS&A’s diversity event and at the NAIS Annual Conference), Los Angeles, San Francisco, Washington D.C., and – new for 2020 – in Nashville covering the Southeast region of the country. Find information on the 2020 conferences here.

Teachers, administrators, and coaches looking for new roles in independent education can complete the firm’s online application. CS&A placement associates work one-on-one with job seekers to find a school community that will be the best fit. Placement associates have training and expertise in specific areas (chemistry, admissions, mathematics, for example) and their services are free of charge for job seekers.

We extend our thanks to Carney, Sandoe & Associates for their continued gold sponsorship of the SAIS Annual Conference and the ways they support quality independent school education across multiple dimensions.
