The Clarity and Counsel Your School Needs to Excel

Operations Assessment

Mike Waylett, an expert in independent school finance, can conduct a thorough review of your school’s operations and finances, provide perspective on current practices, and make practical recommendations for improvement. If you need to make vital decisions, organize priorities, or plan for your school’s future, this objective fiscal and operational checkup can provide the context, analysis, and guidance you need.


Athletics Assessments

Veteran AD Dr. Tim Green can review current Athletics Department operations at your school to verify strengths, identify potential weaknesses, and make concrete, data-driven recommendations for improvement. Our careful review and deep expertise can keep your Athletics Department at the top of its game.


Leadership Team Assessment

A school thrives when the head and her/his direct reports are a focused, cohesive team that collaborates efficiently towards clearly-defined goals.  At times, however, the whole is less than the parts—whether that’s the result of a change of heads, new members added to the leadership team, or specific challenges testing the group.  Our sophisticated Assessment develops concrete steps for improving the performance of the entire leadership team.
