The Latin School of Chicago (Latin) invites nominations and applications for its next Head of School to succeed Randall Dunn.

The Latin School of Chicago is a leading coeducational day school serving 1,190 students in Junior Kindergarten through 12th grade. Latin brings together “Latin Learners” from 76 Chicago neighborhoods and 14 suburbs and boasts a vibrant community that comprises 152 faculty, 103 staff, and approximately 4,500 living and active alumni in a community that embraces diversity of people, cultures, experiences, and thought. Founded in 1888, Latin is one of the oldest independent schools in the city of Chicago and provides its students with a rigorous and innovative liberal arts educational program. Latin inspires its students to pursue their passions and lead lives of purpose and excellence. Located on the Near North Side of Chicago, the school is steps away from Lincoln Park, Lake Michigan, and the innumerable world-class cultural institutions the city has to offer.  

Joining Latin at a time of great change and reflection, Latin’s Head of School will report to the Board of Trustees and work collaboratively to advance the school’s mission and values and uphold its enduring reputation for academic excellence. Honoring and advancing Latin’s recent strategic work as outlined in the 2019 Strategic Design, the next Head will cultivate positive, supportive, and trusting relationships with students, faculty, staff, alums, and families to build consensus around a shared vision for the school’s future. The next Head of School will also progress the school’s demonstrated commitments to diversity, equity, and inclusion, setting measurable goals and strategies that support an inclusive school and classroom culture.

The incoming Head of School at Latin must be a bold, proven leader with excellent communication and listening skills; a record of attracting, retaining, and mentoring educators and leaders; and a talent for building consensus, empowering others, and leading an organization with respect and empathy. The next Head of School at Latin must be able to connect and inspire others and bring a record of action in advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion at previous institutions. The next Head must also demonstrate an unyielding commitment to lifelong learning, including seeking out thoughtful, innovative, and research-based practices within JK-12 education.

For best consideration, please send all nominations and applications to:

Nishant Mehta, Managing Director

Sherry Coleman, Managing Director

Julia Patton, Senior Associate
