POSITION SUCCESSFULLY FILLED!

Principal
St. Columbkille School

Los Angeles, CA

January or July 2019


St. Columbkille School has been serving the South Los Angeles community for over ninety-three years. The Archdiocese of Los Angeles established the parish and school in 1923 and in September of that year the school opened under the direction of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur. The past ninety-one years have seen a dramatic change in the student make up of St. Columbkille. The school primarily catered to working-class European-American families when it first opened, then shifted to a predominantly African-American student population in the middle part of the last century and now is mostly comprised of Latino and African-American students. The school was accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and the Western Catholic Education Association (WCEA) in the Spring of 2009 and received a full six-year term of accreditation until the Summer of 2021.


St. Columbkille School is one of three STEM Triangle schools, along with Ascension and Nativity, all located within a 5-mile radius of one another in South Los Angeles, a community beleaguered by poverty, crime and struggling public schools. For nearly 100 years, these three Catholic schools have provided the positive alternative to these negative factors, providing pockets of hope, stability and opportunity for upward mobility through education for thousands of inner-city children.


Currently serving a total of 265 students in the 2018-19 school year, the school has a bold vision of ensuring that its Catholic education is a key part of the solution to the Achievement Gap that is entrenched in the urban cores of South Los Angeles. The school offers a rigorous academic program of value to students and families of the local communities. Its aim is that every student will realize a future full of hope through the opportunity that education and faith can bring forth. Additional information regarding this incredible school community can be found on the school’s website here.


The next Principal will be an innovative and inspiring leader who can continue to inspire a strong team of educators while implementing rigorous and effective academic programming and design models for curriculum evaluation and assessment. The candidate we seek is a culturally proficient, faith-filled, instructional leader committed to working with children in an urban setting. He or she displays a demonstrated commitment to working with predominately Latino and African-American children and families in an urban school setting. Five years of experience and current teacher credentialing required.


Candidates are expected to be available to assume the responsibilities no later than July 2019. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled. To apply, please submit the following materials, confidentially and as separate PDF attachments in one email to Michael Furey. Please include St. Columbkille School in subject field.


  • Cover letter that aligns your experiences and skill set with the current needs of the diocese as you understand them.
  • Current resume with all appropriate dates included.
  • Statement of Philosophy of Catholic Education
  • List of five references including names, physical addresses, phone numbers and email addresses. No references will be contacted without your knowledge and approval.

Head of School

Archbishop Hannan High School

Covington, LA

July 2019


Located in the Northshore community of Covington, Louisiana, just a 45-minute drive from New Orleans, Archbishop Hannan High School is a grade 8 – 12 school enrolling 617 students offering a broad, college preparatory curriculum along with numerous extracurriculars, yet small enough to feel like a warm and loving family that encourages each student to grow spiritually, intellectually, physically, and creatively.


Archbishop Hannan High School opened its doors on September 3, 1987 in Meraux, Louisiana. On August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina came ashore and completely devasted the school’s physical plant and the surrounding communities. As a result of the wide-spread devastation, a significant number of families relocated to the Northshore area towns. As a result of this diaspora, the Archdiocese of New Orleans re-opened Archbishop Hannan High School in August of 2006 on the grounds of St. Joseph Abbey (temporarily), almost 50 miles away from its original campus. In 2007 construction began on the new campus on a 24-acre site in Covington. Students began classes at the new campus in early November 2008. Later, in 2014, the school completed the final phase of construction Adding a new learning commons and media building, a 10-classroom school building, TV and video production studio, visual arts and ceramics studio, and football/soccer stadium. The school’s website can be found here.


This is an exciting time for Archbishop Hannan and the Archdiocese of New Orleans. With the launch of this search, Archbishop Hannan will pilot the transition from the Principal to Head of School leadership model. Fr. Charles Latour, O.P., currently leads this distinguished school community and will continue to do so through December 2019. As such, the successful candidate will benefit tremendously from Fr. Charlie’s institutional knowledge and overall presence during this six-month leadership transition period.


The candidates we seek will have experience leading academically rigorous curriculums, while demonstrating a comfort and capacity addressing the challenges facing most Catholic schools, specifically in mission-critical areas related to business, finance, enrollment management and advancement initiatives. The next Head of School must have demonstrated proficiency in building and maintaining community relationships that will ensure Archbishop Hannan High School’s continued accessibility, success, and sustainability through the effective stewardship of its parent, alumni, and local community philanthropic constituencies.


The Archdiocese and school community are on a fast-track to identify and secure its Head of School. The successful candidate is expected to arrive in early July 2019. Application procedures and additional information regarding this incredible opportunity can be found here in our detailed search prospectus. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled. Do not delay, connect with our search team today!

Headmaster - Covington Latin School, Covington, KY

Headmaster
Covington Latin School
Covington, KY
July 2019


Covington Latin School, operating under the auspices of the Roman Catholic Bishop of the Diocese of Covington, is a Catholic, coeducational, accelerated, college preparatory day school offering a classical education with six forms – 7 through 12: two preparatory years and years 9 through 12 (forms 1 through 4).


Given the incredibly wide-ranging ability and needs of children who happen to be the same age, Covington Latin strongly believes that academic decisions should be guided by academic criteria rather than age alone. Latin School’s unique accelerated program is designed to provide academically motivated students the opportunity to enter after completing the fifth, sixth, or seventh grade. Incoming Covington Latin School students accelerate one to two years as a condition of admission, and thereby graduate one to two years earlier than their peers in traditional upper schools.


Coursework is entirely college preparatory and is considered the equivalent of honors-level coursework in traditional upper schools. Covington Latin has been profiled in US News and World Report, featured as a "Cool School" by Fox 19 Cincinnati, and ranked the #1 private school in Northern Kentucky by Cincinnati Magazine. For additional information on this distinguished classical school, please visit CLS’s website.


The candidates we seek will have experience leading academically rigorous curriculums, while demonstrating a comfort and capacity addressing the challenges facing most Catholic schools, specifically in mission-critical areas related to business, finance, facilities, enrollment management and advancement initiatives. The next Headmaster must have demonstrated proficiency in building and maintaining community relationships that will ensure Covington Latin School’s continued accessibility, success, and sustainability through the effective stewardship of its parent, alumni, and local community philanthropic constituencies.


The school community is on a fast-track to identify and secure its next Headmaster.
