Patrick F. Bassett
Prior to co-founding Heads Up Educational Consulting in 2013, a consulting firm that provides strategic, operational, governance, and programmatic guidance and consultation to educational enterprises, Pat Bassett spent his entire career in education. He began in 1970 as a teacher in an independent school, and eventually served as head of school of two independent schools. This was followed by the role of president of ISACS, a regional association of independent schools, prior to Pat's appointment as president of the National Association of Independent Schools in 2001, from which he "rewired" in 2013. As senior consultant of Heads Up Educational Consulting, Pat continues to lead workshops, conduct leadership searches, give keynote addresses, and train boards, school leaders, and faculty on what constitutes great schools, great teachers, and great leaders.
Pat served on the board as a trustee of NAIS (1985-1989), The Multicultural Alliance (1994-2000), The Council for Spiritual and Ethical Education (CSEE 1996-2013), and The Council for American Private Education (CAPE 2001-2013). Pat continues to serve on educational and philanthropic boards and boards of schools, colleges, universities, and businesses that serve them. He currently serves on the board of trustees of his alma mater, Williams College (MA), the National Network of Schools in Partnership (a public/private school consortium), United Educators (a school and university risk management insurance company), Finalsite (a website & mobile technologies company), Woodberry Forest School (VA), the Benedict Foundation (mission is to support successful but smaller or challenged independent schools), and Noodle (a high-tech, web-based online service to help families match a student’s need with the right school or college).
Pat's previous honors include being named a Kellogg National Leadership Fellow in 1986; receiving the Educational Leadership Award by The Klingenstein Center of Teachers College (Columbia University) in 2000, and global leadership awards from The European Council for International Schools (ECIS), from the Near East South Asia Council of Overseas Schools (NESA), and from NAIS.
A Phi Beta Kappa, magna cum laude graduate of Williams College where he was captain of the lacrosse team, Pat also holds a master's degree in film studies from Northwestern University (’73). He and his wife, Barbara, have two grown daughters and two grandchildren living in Boulder, CO.
