Position Description

The search for the Headmaster of Morning Star Academy is represented by Vanderbloemen Search Group. A more detailed job description on their site is linked below. 

Founded in 1994, Morning Star Academy is an independent, non-denominational, classical Christian school led by a parent-elected Board of Directors. The school offers preschool through 12th grade. Morning Star Academy heralds the arrival of a new day. In Revelation 22:16, Jesus is described as the “morning star.” It is a fitting title since Jesus has indeed ushered in a new day. The age to come has pierced the present age.

At Morning Star, we strive to help students see all of life under the illuminating glow of Christ’s Kingdom. Equipping students with a Christian worldview (or better, a Christian consciousness) requires relentless prayer, work, and resolve. This is not an easy task, but the effort is worth it, for there is no loftier aim than building disciples. We believe that Morning Star, working alongside parents, is strategically situated to build disciples capable of thoughtfully engaging the world for Christ.

  • Five years’ leadership experience in an educational setting, preferably in a classical Christian school.
