Title President and CEO
Location Crossroads School – Marlborough, MA
Job Information

Crossroads School, whose mission is to provide individualized, comprehensive education and related services to students with autism, seeks a dynamic and entrepreneurial President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Reporting to the Board of Trustees, the CEO will be responsible for setting the strategic direction of the school in accordance with its vision, mission, and values.

Established in 2002 as a satellite campus of the Crossroads Center for Children in New York, the school became its own entity in 2006. It is now known simply as Crossroads School, and serves children and young adults from age 3-22. The program for young adults includes vocational training to prepare them for employment. Class sizes are small, and all instruction and programming are based on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA).

In 2014 Crossroads established a Home-Based Services Department to work with students in their homes and expand learning beyond the classroom. Currently, one third of Crossroads’ students receive services through this department. Now named Consultative Services, Crossroads sees great opportunity to expand this department’s activities to serve more of its own students as well as many people and organizations in the wider community.

Housed in a modern, state-of-the-art facility in a suburb 30 miles west of Boston, Crossroads currently serves 70 students and has 115 staff. The school’s $10M FY2020 operating budget comes from tuition contracts with Massachusetts cities and towns under Chapter 766, consulting services, and contributions.

The new CEO will join Crossroads School at a key point in its evolution and growth. The School has established a solid foundation on which to build and is excited to welcome a new leader who will work with its committed Board of Trustees and staff, and serve as the face of the organization with a range of external constituents to advance Crossroads’ Mission and Vision and ensure that it is well positioned to continue providing exceptional services for children and young adults with autism.

Key priorities for the new CEO will include leading a comprehensive strategic planning process; ensuring that the school’s organizational structure and systems will effectively support its goals; and that it has the financial resources and a strong board to realize its ambitions.

Success will require substantial experience leading a non-profit organization of comparable scope and complexity, ideally including some experience in the field of developmental disabilities, and a deep appreciation for ABA and its potential to bring about transformative change and to help individuals with developmental disabilities reach their full potential. A track record of sound financial management and success diversifying revenue streams, combined with proven ability to garner philanthropic support from individuals and foundations, will also be critical.

The Crossroads School Board of Trustees has named a seven-member search committee and has engaged Isaacson, Miller, a national executive search firm, to assist with this important search. All inquiries, including requests for a detailed position profile; nominations; and application materials, including a resume and cover letter, should be directed in confidence to:

Phillip Petree, Sarah Herman, and Emily McCarthy
Isaacson, Miller

Boston, MA 02210

Electronic submission of materials is strongly encouraged.

Crossroads School is committed to maintaining a work and learning environment free from discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, pregnancy, gender identity, sexual orientation, marital/civil union status, ancestry, place of birth, age, citizenship status, veteran status, political affiliation, genetic information or disability, as defined and required by state and federal laws. Additionally, Crossroads prohibits retaliation against individuals who oppose such discrimination and harassment or who participate in an equal opportunity investigation.
