Applying for Membership

To apply for membership, please complete the application below. The Heads Network Executive Director will then submit your application to the Board of Trustees for their endorsement.

The school itself holds membership in The Heads Network, with the Head of School or Chief Executive Office of an eligible independent school as the representative from that school. They are also encourages to designate one additional faculty/staff member as a secondary representative of the school.


We are so pleased to have your school apply for membership and look forward to welcoming you and working with you in support of our mission and on behalf of your schools.
