Now in its Third Printing

Introducing the book everyone is talking about by our very own Dr. Richard J. Soghoian, now in its third printing!


An Insider’s Irreverent Look at Private School Finances and Management—with a Lesson for Government and Industry, Too!

By Dr. Richard J. Soghoian

Headmaster of Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School

A colorful, informative, and irreverent analysis of private-school leadership at the top—a welcome but troubling look behind the scenes. 

Mind the Gap! tells the captivating story of how this indomitable and visionary leader saved the school from bankruptcy in the early 1980s and subsequently transformed Columbia Grammar and Prep into one of the most sought-after independent schools in New York City. In succinct, intelligent prose, Dr. Soghoian challenges the conventional way of doing business in the private-school world.
