Dr. David A. Wells and the GLOBAL School Consulting Group is honored to partner with the Caspian Academy and Gateway Education Global in seeking a new Head of School.  Caspian Academy (CA) is a private school operating in Baku, Azerbaijan.  The school’s community consists of expatriate families who have cooperated together to see this school established.   Its member-elected Board governs the Academy and the Head of School is chosen and contracted by the Board.

Caspian Academy is a dynamic and developing international school serving global nomads and their families in Central Asia – where East meets West, and ancient and modern blend together.  The Academy was founded in 2005 by a group of international parents as a home school cooperative.  Since then it has grown into a K-12 international school serving the expatriate community.  The school has approximately 75 students from 10 different nationalities, and about 20 faculty members from Europe and North America.  Academics are based on an American curricular foundation with adaptations to better meet the needs of the international student body.  Caspian Academy is a close-knit community committed to growing students academically and socially.

Caspian Academy is looking for an experienced and enthusiastic Head of School to lead the school to the next level of development.  The HOS serves as the administrative and academic leader, and will work in close collaboration with the school leadership team as well as the Caspian Academy school board. To continue developing a high-quality educational environment, CA is working on solidifying the high-school curriculum and is seeking accreditation.  This position offers an exceptional opportunity for an educational leader who enjoys adventure and challenge, interacting with “third culture kids”, and who is passionate about school development.
