Kingsley Montessori School educates children from ages 2 through 12 and empowers them to take control of their own learning process through a combination of Montessori education and a rigorous, integrated curriculum. The School supplements its academics with co-curricular activities, which consist of performing and visual arts, science, technology, physical education, and outdoor education programs. With enrollment at 330+, Kingsley’s student body has doubled since 2006.
In December 2018, Kingsley closed its comprehensive Evolve campaign, which raised $6.6 million in restricted and unrestricted gifts over the course of its three-year run. Building upon this success, the Chief Advancement Officer (CAO) will put in place best practices and infrastructure to scale marketing, communications, and fundraising operations to attract and retain families and students, to motivate alumni and donors, and to recruit high quality faculty and staff. The CAO will expand the School’s institutional reach and fundraising potential through creative tactics that maximize results while broadening and deepening the nature of philanthropic engagement at Kingsley. The ideal candidate has excellent interpersonal skills to motivate and manage volunteer leaders and teams, with a strong ability to partner collaboratively with administration, faculty, and Trustees.
