Our Mission

Our mission is to help our member schools offer their students the best possible education and experience by providing search and consulting services delivered with skill, care, and integrity.

Our History

Founded in 1902, Southern Teachers is the oldest school recruiter in America. Historically, the two defining characteristics of our work were a focus on teacher placement and a dedication to serving schools in the South. We performed this work with uncompromising integrity and exceptional service.

Our Future

Moving forward, our work will focus on services that we’ve refined over the last two decades: leadership search/placement and consulting services. With ST Search & Consulting, we will continue to perform our work with the same integrity and devotion to quality that we’ve embraced since 1902.

  • Tim Green was thorough and thoughtful in his Athletics Assessment of our program at the University of Chicago Lab School, speaking to numerous people, poring over data, and evaluating our programs and facilities. He helped us identify and articulate key priorities over the short and long term. A great pleasure to work with, and the assessment was highly worthwhile. Thank you!
