Located just north of Seattle in Shoreline, Washington, The Evergreen School has been educating highly capable, creative learners for nearly 60 years. Our students love to ask questions, and our teachers use that natural curiosity to craft engaging lessons and spark thought-provoking conversations. Evergreen’s program infuses challenging academics with foundational support for social skills, emotional well-being and empathy for others. Our students think deeply, take intellectual risks, and tackle complex problems. They learn how to self-advocate, collaborate with others and understand differences. Evergreen graduates move on to high school and beyond with confidence, ready to contribute to a diverse and dynamic world.

Evergreen currently enjoys an outstanding financial position due to prudent decision-making and thoughtful leadership. The incoming CFO will continue this legacy, working as a strategic partner with the head of school and board leadership, providing modeling, financial forecasting, and cost/benefit analyses for both operational and strategic initiatives. The role requires a forward-thinking, data-driven leader with excellent problem-solving skills and the ability to work collaboratively as part of a team. In addition, the successful candidate must have a commitment to our mission as an independent school for highly capable students as well as a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Evergreen is seeking a highly-skilled, mission-driven, and experienced financial professional to become its new chief financial officer. The CFO reports directly to the head of school, serves as a member of the Senior Leadership Team, and supervises direct reports in five departments: Business Office, Facilities, Health/Safety, Auxiliary Programs, and IT. Primary responsibilities include development and management of the operating budget, oversight of all accounting and payroll functions, long-term financial planning, legal and risk management, human resources, financial aid, and operations involving facilities, IT, and Auxiliary Programs.
