St. John’s Parish Day School is conducting a search for its next Head of School, who will assume leadership in July 2019. Located in historic Ellicott City, west of Baltimore, St. John’s is a school that fulfills its promise to provide a safe, nurturing environment and a hands-on educational program delivered by outstanding teachers.
St. John’s mission is to educate children with a stimulating and challenging academic curriculum in a culturally and economically diverse community.
From its founding, St. John’s has been committed to diversity of all kinds. St. John’s celebrates children and encourages them to be their best selves. It provides the organic faith formation that separates Episcopal schools from their independent school peers. Because the school graduates students after fifth grade, its students are allowed to be kids a little bit longer and develop leadership and mentoring skills a little bit sooner. Students at St. John’s are known for their kindness and their ability to think. All 2018 graduates of St. John’s were admitted to their first-choice school.
The next Head of School of St. John’s will find a strong partnership between faculty and parents. The new Rector of St. John’s Episcopal Church is a ready collaborator to help the church and school continue to grow together. The Head of School will examine marketing strategies to emphasize the school’s strengths today and potential for the future.
The next Head of School should demonstrate a commitment to and love for elementary-aged children, have experience with and zest for student recruitment, demonstrate integrity, honor, and commitment to community, and have excellent written and verbal communication skills. He or she must possess facility in managing resources to accomplish the strategic goals of the school. The ability to provide a unifying force through a clear vision with an energetic and optimistic personality is essential.
