Deeper partnership for more inclusive and welcoming school communities.

CalWest Educators has West Coast roots, national reach, and a global focus that has served a broad range of private and independent schools for more than 20 years. We’ve built a consulting team of dedicated private school professionals, including former and current heads of school, educators, and administrators as well as those from nonprofit and business backgrounds.

We’re dedicated to cultivating an in-depth understanding of each client school’s distinct culture and the students, faculty, staff, and families who create it. Through our DEEP approach, we provide schools with tailored solutions and timely insights as they grow and evolve into the next generation of welcoming and inclusive schools.
