Athletic Director

Perhaps you were an all-star collegiate athlete, intoxicated by the smell of the field and the familiar surge of adrenaline that accompanies a competition.

You consider yourself a competitor and a team player, and you know that athletics — as much as academics — shaped your education and instilled values in you that have influenced your decisions both on and off the field.  You are passionate about sports and coaching as well as about teaching K-12 students.  Have you ever considered joining an independent school as an athletic director?


Many independent schools place heavy emphasis on their athletic programs, believing the marriage of friendly competition and teamwork can create better-rounded students.  Whether you're looking to join a well-established athletic program or make your mark on a small one, CS&A's teacher placement firm can help you find a perfect fit

An Independent School's Athletic Director integrates the school's mission into the athletics department's goals.   The director ensures compliance with conference rules and regulations, represents the school's athletic programs, exposes student-athletes to different opportunities, manages department finances and budgets, and assists with hiring coaches.  As an independent school athletic director, your voice will be instrumental in conversations regarding the role and perception of athletics at your institution.
