Crane Country Day School is a warm and vibrant place where students and Staffulty (Crane’s hybrid word for staff and faculty) work hand in hand exploring discovery-based lessons in idyllic Santa Barbara, CA. Since its founding in 1928, Crane has been committed to stimulating the minds and spirits of children from kindergarten through eighth grade. Joyful learning, long-tenured Staffulty, and financial strength are hallmarks of this beloved school. With two key members of the small leadership team departing, finding up-and-coming leaders and diverse perspectives were key for Crane’s future. The school needed a warm, accessible, and skilled CFO and a creative, grounded, and savvy Associate Head of School and Upper School Director.
