Independent School Advisors


MJC has extensive experience working with independent schools facing communications challenges. The firm has advised dozens of day and boarding schools, assisting heads of school, boards of trustees, and legal counsel.

We understand the unique culture of independent schools. They are often treated harshly by the news media. We know that in most instances, our clients want to stay out of the news and we help them achieve that objective.

We help manage a crisis, including communication with the school community and interaction with the news media.

We know that discretion is of utmost importance when schools face a crisis. References available upon request.
