St. Luke’s Episcopal School is an institution of dualities. It is close to sixty years old, yet it will be graduating just its seventh senior class in 2019. It is a Protestant Episcopal school, yet it welcomes and celebrates people from all faiths. It exists on two campuses, yet it is decidedly one school. St. Luke’s embraces all the complexities that make it unique, and it now seeks a Head of School who will appreciate what makes the school special and help it achieve its next level of excellence.
Like many independent schools, St. Luke’s is proud of its family atmosphere. At St. Luke’s, “family” means a school where teachers are accessible and where parents are engaged. It means a staff culture where people roll up their sleeves to help where help is needed and where nobody says, “That’s not my job.” Classes are purposely kept small because the ability to forge relationships between teachers and students is paramount to the St. Luke’s experience. Students at St. Luke’s find their niche.
The next Head of School will take on leadership of a school that has made tremendous progress over the past decade. The Upper School is now established, and the finances of the school are strong. Recent fundraising efforts have been successful, and the groundwork is laid for the next Head of School to make a significant mark on the history of the school. The Board of Trustees at St. Luke’s seeks a visionary partner, an energetic communicator, and an effective implementer to build on the strong foundation the current leadership will be leaving behind. This opportunity is particularly compelling because of one final duality--the quality of the opportunity and the wonderful community of Mobile itself, a Gulf Coast town with a rich combination of culture, beauty, and quality of life.
Southern Teachers Agency is the premiere PK-12 teacher and administrative recruitment service in the South. STA offers free teacher placement for candidates, and we are the only agency that focuses on private & independent school placements in the South. We work with schools from Maryland south to Florida, and as far west as Texas.
STA provides personal service to our candidates and our schools. Each candidate is treated as an individual with unique talents and with unique search parameters. Schools appreciate our reputation for knowing and honestly assessing our candidates. They know that we send them the most viable candidates--otherwise, they would not hire them.
As a result, we have placed more teachers, coaches, and school administrators in the South than any other agency.
Founded in 1902, STA is the oldest independent school placement service in America.
When only the best will do, come to STA!
