  • A cover letter indicating why you are particularly interested in and qualified for the position
  • A current résumé
  • A statement of educational philosophy
  • The names, addresses, and telephone numbers of three references. (Please submit this information on a separate document, not as part of your résumé or cover letter. We will obtain permission from you before contacting references on this list.)
  • Optional: Other supporting material (e.g. articles, speeches, or letters of recommendation) that would be useful to the Search Committee.

These materials should be transmitted via email attachment to searches@wickenden.com.

A Note about Confidentiality:

Rest assured, we never contact references without first securing the candidate’s permission. Because we know so many leaders in the independent school world, just reviewing your list of references may provide us with valuable information about you. Typically, if we are interested in presenting your credentials to a search committee, we will seek your permission to conduct one preliminary reference. If you are a finalist in one of our searches, we will conduct references with at least five professional colleagues of yours, all with your knowledge.
