Trinity Christian School

Idaho 83211

Position Description

Trinity Christian School (TCS) is located in the beautiful town of American Falls in south-eastern Idaho. TCS is a new Classical Christian school, and the board’s desire is to startup the school in the fall of 2022. A Christian school existed in American Falls in the 80’s and 90’s, but it was not a classical Christian school. Uniquely for a startup, a fully paid for building, school board, and startup funds already exist. The Lord is leading a host of families to act now to restart this school under the classical model. This position will work directly with the TCS board to reestablish the school which will encompass  American Falls and its surrounding communities. The school week will be four days/week to match the local school district’s schedule. Currently, the largest need exists for grades 7-9, but there is flexibility if the need for more grades can be supported.

The board is seeking a Headmaster/Teacher who has a deep love for the LORD, who possesses a heart to serve by leading,  and who can create vision for our school and the future education of our students. We desire this Headmaster to have a passion, commitment, and love for classical, Christian education and Biblical worldview. Trinity Christian School’s mission intentionally seeks to nurture students to love God with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength, and who are equipped to think, write, and speak eloquently in order to live a life of virtue in the likeness of Christ. The Headmaster will bear the responsibility of being the spiritual, academic, executive, and operational leader of the school.
