PRINCIPAL SOUGHT FOR HOLY CROSS SCHOOL, SOUTH BEND, INDIANA
Holy Cross School is a Pre-K through 8th Grade Catholic School with a current enrollment of 295 students in South Bend, IN. Founded by the Congregation of Holy Cross in 1929, the Holy Cross School community is vibrant, diverse, and committed. The school is firmly rooted in celebrating faith, knowledge, language, and culture.
The school currently has a Traditional English Track for grades Pre-Kindergarten-8th and, in partnership with the University of Notre Dame, specifically the Alliance for Catholic Education and the Institute for Latino Studies, a Two-Way Spanish Immersion Track, currently for grades Pre-Kindergarten through 1st. The Two-Way Immersion Track is expanding a grade each year until the 2026-27 school year when total school enrollment is expected to reach over 500 students. This innovative education approach is the only model of its type in the diocese, and is a clear way in which Holy Cross School is elevating the faith, knowledge, language, and culture of our local community, families and students.
Holy Cross School is seeking a dynamic, visionary, and faith-filled leader to serve as its next principal, who will assume leadership beginning with the 2020-2021 school year. The principal, a Catholic active in living their faith, shall hold (or be working toward) an Indiana elementary supervision and administration license. A bilingual (Spanish-speaking) candidate is preferred. The primary function of the Holy Cross school principal is to provide leadership and instructional support that provides students, teachers, staff, and all members of our school community the opportunity to become disciples of Jesus and reach their God-given academic and personal potential.
