Christ Church Episcopal School is conducting a search for its next Middle School Director. The CCES Middle School is an essential, transitional component of the school’s college preparatory mission. Students learn to meet the accelerating demands of the academic curriculum in an environment that is, first and foremost, student-centered. Each student has the opportunity to develop to his or her fullest potential—intellectually, creatively, socially, athletically, and spiritually.
Christ Church Episcopal School seeks a highly qualified educational leader who understands the dynamics of a school with rigorous academics, a student-centered focus, and a collaborative administrative team. The Middle School Director should communicate vision and expectations clearly; hold people accountable while bringing them together; and exhibit the positive belief that most problems can be solved. He or she will seek critical feedback, listen actively, and focus on constant, substantive improvement. Christ Church seeks candidates who inspire others to be their best selves, engage with parents, teachers, and students honestly and earnestly, command respect, and invest in the whole school.
Now in its 60th year of operation, Christ Church has remained true to its core values: character, community, excellence, and service. CCES is mission driven, with strong academics, exemplary arts, excellent athletics and co-curricular programs, and an exceptionally dedicated and caring faculty. Committed to the highest standards of integrity, personal responsibility, and respect for others, the CCES community embraces the school’s Honor Code and its rich Episcopal traditions. CCES celebrates its Episcopal identity through its cultivation of strong community bonds. It feels compelled as an Episcopal school to infuse equity, justice, and respect for the dignity of every individual into its daily routines. Its Strategic Plan for 2017-2022 reflects the commitment of the school to a growth mindset and the virtues of intentional cultivation of healthy habits. CCES seeks leaders who provide models for these behaviors.
