WHY CALWEST

A Deeper Approach to Hiring, Retention & Inclusion

CalWest has West Coast roots, national reach, and a global focus that has served a broad range of private and independent day and boarding schools for more than 20 years. Across all of our offerings, we focus on cultivating deeply personalized relationships that inform our understanding of your school’s culture, goals, and talent needs.

We lead teacher, administrator, and head-of-school searches across the western United States. Through a combination of dedicated search consultants and highly-trained search staff, we recruit culturally competent and highly-accomplished educators and school leaders from a wide range of professional backgrounds. 

In 2020, CalWest expanded its offerings to include consulting.  Our consulting team, comprised of independent school professionals and subject matter experts from nonprofit and business backgrounds, works with schools across the United States to develop hiring and retention strategies that build equitable and inclusive school communities.

Our success in both search and consulting are informed by our core approach – DEEP. When you choose CalWest, you’re joining a partnership that values  Diversity, Empathy, Engagement, and Personalization above all.
