CS&A and The Baker Group

Carney, Sandoe & Associates, a leading provider of staffing, retained search, and consulting services for education organizations, is excited to announce our exclusive partnership with The Baker Group, the premier enrollment management search, consulting, and audit firm serving independent schools.

For over 20 years, The Baker Group has provided schools with enrollment management services, including retained search, consulting, and admission and enrollment management audits. These services are more critical than ever as schools face mounting challenges related to changing demographics, increasing access for diverse populations, and positioning for long-term sustainability.

With this partnership, CS&A provides the added resources and scaffolding to empower The Baker Group to make a larger impact throughout the education landscape. And The Baker Group provides CS&A’s constituents with a suite of critical services related to enrollment management, including:

  • Admission and enrollment management audits and strategic consulting services
  • Retained search for chief enrollment officers
  • Professional development and learning for educational leaders

Devereaux McClatchey, President of CS&A, reflects: “We are thrilled to partner with The Baker Group to help schools tackle the difficult challenges related to admissions and strategic enrollment management. There is no firm more respected in private K-12 education in these critical areas than The Baker Group. With the addition of Chris and her team, we now will offer enrollment management consulting and admission office assessments – services which schools need now more than ever as they endeavor to map out a strategic path forward for long-term sustainability.”

And Chris Baker, President of The Baker Group, shares: “This partnership represents an exciting new chapter for The Baker Group. I am a longtime admirer of CS&A and its commitment to building more diverse and inclusive educational communities. Our respective missions and values align beautifully. Partnering with CS&A represents the best way for our organization to bolster and extend our support of schools and education leaders in their enrollment management efforts. I can’t wait to start working with CS&A as we embark on this new path together.”
