Description :

Head of School July 1, 2018

Santa Fe Christian Schools (SFCS) seeks a Head of School to lead this exemplary school beginning July 1, 2018.  Founded in 1977, SFCS is a coeducational, nondenominational, independent day school with a mission to “partner with Christian parents within a Bible-based community, in order to disciple students to embrace biblical truth, strive for academic excellence, and model Christ-like leadership to influence … communities for Christ.”

The school enrolls more than 1,000 students in pre-school through 12th grade on a seventeen-acre campus in the beautiful ocean community of Solana Beach, California. SFCS enjoys outstanding facilities and programs that are being expanded through a recently enacted capital campaign. Enrollment is stable and student retention strong, with a 95%+ re-enrollment rate. The next Head of School will find a strong Board of Trustees, admirable parent support, high faculty morale, and a competent executive leadership team in place. SFCS provides a challenging college preparatory education within the framework of a distinctly Christian worldview. SFCS seeks an innovative and experienced head with a proven record of accomplishments to lead the school into its next phase of development, building on its traditions and successes. For the 2017-18 school year, an Interim Head of School will lead SFCS.

The Head of School serves as the Chief Executive Officer, and academic, and spiritual leader of the school, and reports to the Board of Trustees. The next Head of School is expected to build upon the existing strengths of SFCS and to provide strategic, visionary leadership as the school enters into the next phase of its development. Key characteristics of the right candidate will include a demonstrated and articulate Christian faith, strong relational and team-building skills, a clear comfort in advancement/development work, and competence in communicating and especially implementing a strong vision for the school. Compensation is competitive and commensurate with qualifications and experience.
