Heads of School Retreat

MSM Heads of School Retreat, November 30 - December 1, 2017

Leading a school is one of the most rewarding and the most challenging vocations in academia. It can also be one of the loneliest. A head of school engages every day with many constituents – students, parents, board members, donors, faculty, staff, and community members – but it is difficult to find a colleague or two who understands the role, who can truly offer a listening ear, and who can offer a helpful, unbiased response. Finding a peer group that can offer support and suggestions in a safe environment is essential to thriving in the role.

Based on feedback from our member survey last year, and our desire to help meet the needs of member schools, MSM will be hosting a two-day retreat for heads of school. Your financial investment is small considering the large number of opportunities that could be gained.

Would you like to spend a couple of days talking with peers about admissions, marketing, budgeting, legal issues, or board relations? Would you look forward to trying out a few ideas with people that understand your job? Would you welcome the chance to learn from others who are engaged in the same efforts? This is your chance!
