Founded in 1969, Cannon School has quickly become a leader in JrK-12 education in Charlotte and the Southeast region. Serving over 1,000 students from Concord and the surrounding communities, Cannon offers a rigorous but balanced education that prepares students to meet the challenges of a dynamic and unpredictable future.
Rooted in the concept of Adaptive Expertise, Cannon has become a model of growth and innovation. Excited about a new mission statement that better captures the school’s essence and aspirations, the Cannon community has wholly and eagerly embraced new ideas and constituencies.
Sited on a 65-acre campus in idyllic Concord, North Carolina, Cannon is well-positioned for success in the coming years. 2019 will mark the school’s 50th anniversary, and the next Head will inherit an institution that is flourishing as it approaches this milestone.
Head of School, Matt Gossage will retire in 2019 after an extremely successful 13-year tenure. The school seeks an experienced and energetic administrator to serve as its next leader.
The Headship of Cannon is among the most exciting opportunities on today’s independent school landscape. For a talented, visionary, and dynamic educator who values authenticity and kindness as much as growth and innovation, this is a superb opportunity to join a community confident in its identity but eager to embrace new voices.
Acting on behalf of Cannon School, Wickenden Associates is actively recruiting talented academic leaders for this exciting leadership opportunity. The lead consultants are Linda Knights (email@example.com) and James Wickenden (firstname.lastname@example.org). Both may be reached at 609 683 1355. The application deadline is August 1, 2018.
