"KSC was instrumental in the creation and success of AMS's Capital Campaign and our 13,000sf, $2.6 million new facilities project. They gave us THE tools to bring the school's 20 year dream to fruition."
—Tamara Sheesley-Balis, Former Head of School, Amherst Montessori School
Kevin S. Campbell
Merging more than two decades of teaching and administrative experience at the early childhood through university levels with a prior background in real estate development, Kevin oversees KSC's entire scope of services. Be it growing capital, programs, staff, or facilities through an integrated approach to supporting schools in transition, Kevin guides the entirety of a school community toward fulfilling its mission.
Kevin possesses a BA and MA in Education. And in his evolving roles as teacher, program founder, Head of School, presenter, and consultant, he has guided several schools in their physical, educational, and fiscal maturation, including most recently shepherding two growing Montessori schools to successful completion of complex, multi-million dollar Capital Facilities Projects and companion Capital Campaigns.
In addressing the challenge-and-opportunity-driven nature of school growth, Kevin's brings his extensive business and fiscal acumen--fundraising, project planning and oversight, school management, administrative support, teacher training, and classroom teaching--to bear upon on how schools work and how best to serve their needs in the most respectful manner possible. The results are school communities that grow and give, operating and project budgets that balance, programs that inspire and fully enroll, facilities that energize and affirm, staff and faculty that reflect upon and deepen their practice, students that engage possibility and embrace independence, and whole school environments that strive toward shared goals and values.
