The Head of School builds, trains and leads a highly qualified faculty and staff, and together they attend to the intellectual, spiritual, emotional, social, and physical growth of each child. Administratively, the Head of School will supervise the effective development of CAVS’ educational program, increase enrollment and retention, manage finances, and provide input to the Board of Trustees on these initiatives.

The Head of School will also be an asset to the Board and other members of school leadership as a resource and strategic visionary, with an ex officio, non-voting seat on the Board. The Head of School is a full-time employee of the CAVS Board of Trustees, working an average of 40 hours a week during regular school hours, evenings, and some weekends, throughout the school year.
