James Hickey, Ph.D.

Austin PreparatorySchool is a Catholic, coeducational, independent school in the Augustinian tradition that strives to prepare its students for success in higher education and in their adult lives, for leadership in a diverse democracy, and for lives of service to others in the spirit of Jesus Christ. In the tradition of St. Augustine, Austin Preparatory School, a Catholic middle and high school, has been on a journey for more than 50 years.

For the past three years, LSS Consulting Group has been providing services that encompass academic strategic planning, new Board governance structures, financial sustainability seminars, enrollment management procedures, annual fund administration, search and placement for senior level positions and executive coaching.  


"Every head of school needs a good sounding board, someone who can offer insight and share wisdom.  As a long-time head of school, Larry is well versed in school culture and has an extraordinary perspective about best practices in independent schools.  As the current head of Austin Prep, I have worked very closely with Larry for almost three years and his experience has been invaluable.

We’ve worked together on a variety of initiatives – strategic and academic planning, enrollment management, building a culture of philanthropy, leading a board retreat and advancing governance – that have helped strengthen our school community.  In particular, Larry's insights and experience with governance has helped the Board elevate their work from the strategic to the generative."
