Ability to recruit, develop and retain vibrant, Christ-like faculty who share the same passion for educating children in a classical and Christ-centered environment.
Ability to develop and maintain trust and effective relationships with students, parents, teachers, the community, administrative staff, and the Board of Directors.
The duties of the Head of School include adhering to all school policies, hiring and overseeing all staff and administration, overseeing financial matters, maintaining the spiritual quality of the school, maintaining student discipline, overseeing recruitment, and managing all day-to-day administrative duties – all toward the classical, Christian vision in place at the school.
