A unique opportunity for a transformational leader and Catholic educator to lead a private school with a long history of academic and athletic success, an extensive alumni network and engaged, supportive Faculty and staff committed to the education of young men who will contribute to their communities and find spiritual fulfillment and career success guided by Catholic values.
Since 1852, under the direction of the Basilian Fathers, St. Michael’s College School (SMCS) has been educating young men in goodness, discipline, and knowledge for lives of leadership and service, and forming them in faith to present the face of Jesus Christ to the world.
SMCS stands as Canada’s only Catholic, Basilian, faith-based independent school, offering a university-preparatory program in Grades 7 to 12, in a scholastic environment designed with students’ particular strengths, aptitudes and needs in mind. The school provides a unique learning and growing experience during which a boy develops the framework of his character and builds the foundation for his life as a man.
Whatever the role at SMCS, it is more than a job – it is joining a community of likeminded colleagues who embrace the school’s values and deliver those values in everything that they do.
SMCS is looking for its new Principal, who will be expected to lead the evolution of the school’s culture to emphasize the school’s rich and proud history and achievements while ensuring a consistent reflection of its core values.
About the Role
A consultative and energetic leader who infuses enthusiasm and promise in the school climate, the new Principal will work to bring the staff together in a professional learning community to balance traditional teaching and learning strategies with inquiry based pedagogical approaches that emphasize higher order thinking skills and collaborative deep learning strategies that will equip students with competencies and character needed to be successful in the innovative, constantly changing world of the 21st Century.
Strong, humble, visionary and empowering, you will support the co-curricular programs to provide an engaging offering of athletics and the arts while modeling and instilling in the student population respect for diversity, commitment to equity and anti-oppression.
This is a mission-critical mandate for a spiritual leader who is an inspiring catalyst for the growth of colleagues, an effective administrator, a recognized academic leader with experience in cutting-edge instructional practice and risk management, committed to the continuous improvement of student learning and well-being in a safe learning environment that embraces Catholic tradition and values.
An excellent communicator who can share ideas consistently and listen to the views of staff, students, parents, alumni and community, you embody personal success not just in academia but more broadly, in athletics or the arts, and can serve as a mentor to students and staff. Your collaborative, accessible approach leads to inclusive decision-making that brings people and divergent ideas together, while your strategic skills enable you to anticipate issues and seek early resolution.
St. Michael’s will count on you to be a highly visible leader who supports student activities and participates in the life of the school; an influential leader with the political acumen to validate and integrate the various voices in the school community; a leader skilled in the constructive use of social media, and the use of technology overall to improve teaching and learning; an educator whose personal code of ethics will provide a model for students and staff alike.
This mandate calls for a Principal certification with a master’s degree in a related field and 10+ years of senior leadership educational experience.
