Educational Directions: Introduction

Founded in 1986, and working exclusively with independent schools, Educational Directions (EduDx) is a nationally recognized consulting firm for independent schools and is an acknowledged leader in searches for heads of school and administrators.

Leadership Searches

We believe that changes in leadership are transformational moments that schools should optimize, seizing every opportunity embedded within. This belief drives everything we do and how we assist schools undertaking searches for new leadership.


We work with school leaders in areas related to developing organizational capacity and with boards of trustees on enhancing governance.


As a leader in head of school search and transition consulting, and as part of our ongoing research on independent school leadership, Educational Directions has been tracking head of school appointments since 1993. We are pleased to share with you our list of head of school appointments.

"We had a great experience working with the partners at Educational Directions. Their expertise and sound judgment helped our school reach a whole new level."
