A Deeper Approach to Hiring, Retention & Inclusion - For Over 20 Years

CalWest has West Coast roots, national reach, and a global focus that serves a broad range of private and independent day and boarding schools. 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.

CalWest also offers strategic consulting services to help school teams create equitable and inclusive hiring practices. Our methodology and expertise help administrative teams attract, hire and retain diverse faculty and staff.  Our consulting team members, comprised of independent school professionals and subject matter experts from nonprofit and business backgrounds, work 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.
