Founded in 1964, Hackett Catholic Prep is the proud flagship high school within the Catholic Schools of Greater Kalamazoo (CSGK). Recently selected as “The Coolest City in America”, Kalamazoo is a vibrant community of industry, culture, and the arts and is home to superb institutions of higher learning including Kalamazoo College and the Western Michigan University. The highly acclaimed and innovative “Kalamazoo Promise” provides generous financial aid and scholarships to local students attending college and is a model of equity and inclusion for cities across the country.
The school seeks a dynamic and entrepreneurial, faith-filled Head of School who will embrace the challenge of taking this fine school to the next level. The school educates upwards of 250 students per year and has been a relatively low profile but highly effective presence in the community, sending its graduates to some of the most prominent colleges in the country. The board and bishop feel the time has come to turn up the volume and raise the profile and exceptional value proposition of this promising school.
