The Cristo Rey East Bay High School Project is seeking a Principal for its Roman Catholic, co-educational, secondary school to open in the fall of 2018 on the campus formerly home to Saint Elizabeth’s High School. The school is sponsored by the De La Salle Christian Brothers, District of San Francisco New Orleans.
The school will utilize a Corporate Work Study Program modeled after the successful programs at all 32 Cristo Rey Network schools. All students are required to complete a college preparatory curriculum and participate in the Work Study Program. Under the Corporate Work Study Program, each student is employed one day per week by a local business or community agency to provide tuition assistance and complement the school’s on-site curricular program. The school is currently participating in the Replication Process of the Cristo Rey Network.
Reporting directly to the President, the Principal will be a dynamic leader committed to the education of the young, especially the economically poor and marginalized. The Principal must demonstrate a record of academic leadership, executive management, and the achievement of innovative operational and strategic goals. A visionary leader is sought, one who is rooted in the Catholic faith and who can effectively represent and articulate the school’s mission to its various constituencies.
An ideal candidate for Principal will have 3 or more years of demonstrated success in an administrative role in a secondary school environment. In addition, this candidate would have an MA in education, leadership or a related field, and an Administrative License. The candidate must possess and model strong leadership skills, desire collaborative team management, be committed to understanding and embracing the cultural backgrounds of students and families, possess both excellent written and oral communication skills, and have experience as a supervisor of personnel with budgetary responsibility. We seek a person of faith who believes in school as community and who understands and embraces the role of Principal in these specific areas: faith formation, the development of institutional culture, instructional and academic leadership, and co-curricular and service programs.
