Head of School

St. Catherine's Montessori   Houston, TX, usa

Contact: RHamar@educationgroup.com

Head of School Search

St. Catherine’s Montessori, Houston, Texas

The School

St. Catherine’s Montessori (SCM) is an engaging and vibrant education community, serving children 14-month-old through twelfth grade in the heart of Houston, Texas. SCM upholds the values of its shared Montessori and Catholic heritages. As an AMI school, St. Catherine’s follows the philosophy, curriculum and traditions established by respected educator, Dr. Maria Montessori. More than simply a method of education, the Montessori approach encourages the child’s natural curiosity and fosters the whole child’s development—intellectually, physically, socially, morally, and spiritually. As a Catholic community, St. Catherine’s nurtures students’ spiritual development so that each student may experience the presence of God both individually and in the community. Through a combination of rigorous academic study, moral education, and spiritual inquiry, students are prepared for admission to and success at leading universities across the United States.

St. Catherine’s Dominican founders envisioned the rich potential of combining Montessori and Catholic principles, and their generous legacy continues to inspire the SCM community. A school of 55 years, St. Catherine’s settled at the 10.4-acre Timberside campus in July 2006 and the high school opened in August 2017. In February 2019, St. Catherine’s was gifted three acres of land at Japhet Creek in Houston’s Greater East End District to expand the Adolescent Community’s environmental education activities.

The complementary missions of Montessori education and the Catholic faith are perhaps most simply summarized by the school’s guiding motto, “Bringing Wisdom to Light.” SCM exists to teach children to discover their place in God’s world for lives of wisdom, love, and service. Informed by a solid Catholic perspective, SCM offers an education that attends to the nurturing and development of the whole child so that each may form a sure foundation for life.

The Position

St. Catherine’s Montessori seeks a dynamic and inspiring educational leader who will wholeheartedly embrace the mission, core values, and culture of St. Catherine’s Montessori starting in July 2022. A successful candidate will be an experienced, approachable educational leader who will embody and support the school’s Catholic identity. The next Head of School must embrace Montessori education and steer the school as a servant leader whose example, energy level, enthusiasm, passion, and commitment inspire faculty and staff. A compassionate and engaging champion of children, the Head of School promotes the school, serves as a visionary leader and principal institutional spokesperson, and is responsible for leading and overseeing all aspects of the school while working closely with the Board of Directors.

To Apply

Interested candidates should provide a resume, cover letter highlighting their interest in and qualifications for the position, statement of philosophy of leadership, and list of five (5) professional references with contact information, as a single attachment, by November 30, 2021. These materials should be sent to one of the following consultants.

Good Shepherd Montessori School, a well respected PS-8th co-educational, independent school in South Bend, Indiana, seeks a dynamic, caring, knowledgeable leader for their Head of School position. Good Shepherd is an independent, high fidelity Montessori school accredited by the Independent Schools Association of the Central States (ISACS) and a full member of the American Montessori Society (AMS). Though informed by the Christian tradition, we welcome people of all cultural, spiritual, and faith based backgrounds. Committed to a tradition of land based learning and environmental justice, we are situated on a unique campus and home to an urban farm in the heart of our community. Relationality and living in “right relationship” are at the core of our mission and daily work. Founded in 2002 with 16 children, Good Shepherd has grown to over 160 children with the loving support of benefactors, community member respect, and committed families. Our wider home of South Bend is a robust college community with seven universities, a growing medical community, and a strong not for profit culture. The city is a vibrant, diverse community with potential and was recently named one of the top-performing small cities in the United States (between 100,000-500,000 residents) by the Resonance Consultancy.

As our founder and long-serving Head of School Daniel Driscoll moves out of his role in June of 2022, Good Shepherd is ready for the next phase of growth and development while simultaneously upholding its commitment to rigorous, joyful education, and an unsurpassed community of practice. Our current school staff has almost 250 years of collective experience at the school. Collegiality is a hallmark of our institution and we seek a leader who will continue to embrace and expand the ethos of belonging to an even wider constituency.

The Head of School’s most important role is to ensure educational practice that is healthy, holistic, and joyful, for everyone involved, with the best interest of the child at the forefront of our work at all times. In addition to overseeing educational practices, school culture, curriculum and instruction, the Head of School is responsible for the overall management of the school, in accordance with board policies. Mentoring and supporting the school’s teachers and staff with a developmental, collaborative mindset is central to the role. The Head of School is also the primary spokesperson and point of contact for the school with all its internal and external constituencies including students, parents, faculty, staff, alumni, neighbors, benefactors, business community, governmental agencies, and local, state, regional and national educational organizations, and accrediting bodies. Ultimately, the incoming Head of School will develop a vision for leading Good Shepherd into the next two decades with a focus on sustainable resources and longevity as a community pillar.

This position is an excellent opportunity for a school leader, an educator with some administrative experience, or a not for profit leader to advance the mission of the school, be a beacon of powerful educational practice for the wider world, and continue to solidify the foundation of our school for future generations of students.

We are excited about your interest in our unique mission and the position of Head of School for Good Shepherd Montessori School.

Head of School

Arbor Montessori School   Decatur, GA, usa

Contact: neil.johnson@carneysandoe.com

Arbor Montessori School

Decatur, Georgia

Head of School

Start Date: July 2022

OVERVIEW

Arbor Montessori School, located in Decatur, Georgia, a thriving city in the metropolitan Atlanta area, is doing well. Enrollment for the current school year substantially exceeds projections and the school’s finances are solid. Even so, Arbor has ambitions for the future.

Under the capable leadership of an Interim Head of School (a former teacher who was persuaded to take on the Head of School role, but who is not interested in the permanent position), the school is doing a wonderful job educating its children from 18 months through 14-years-old. Arbor enjoys a positive reputation in the Atlanta area as a leading Montessori school. At nearly 250 students, the school is well on its way to the 300 students that were its peak pre-COVID.

Most importantly, Arbor Montessori knows who it is. This is a school that is committed to the practices of AMI Montessori in all respects. At the same time, it also welcomes innovation within the AMI framework and is blessed with many long-tenured faculty who are passionate about the students they guide.

The future has exciting possibilities. Presently located on two campuses, the school is considering options for strategic use of its land, including newly acquired property, as well as the possibility of adding a high school. As with all schools, Arbor is eager to build its efforts to address diversity, equity, and inclusion, including the necessity of serving a student body with a broad range of learning styles and abilities.

The Arbor Board is eager to welcome a new Head of School to start in the summer of 2022 to partner with the Board to build on Arbor’s strengths and embrace the many exciting options going forward.

OPPORTUNITIES AND CHALLENGES

The new Head of School will have the opportunity to have real positive impact in a number of areas including:

• Rebuilding enrollment to an “ideal target” of 300 students, with particular focus on retention.

• Working with the Board on strategic use of Arbor’s land, including the recently purchased adjacent property.

• Working with the Arbor community in the further development and implementation of a diversity, equity, and inclusion plan.

• Exploring the possibility of a special learners program within the school.

• Building a more intentional external relations program that supports its Arbor’s enrollment goals as well as its fundraising.

• Establishing an endowment to benefit from Arbor’s long-term stability and build on the school’s solid financial footing.

• Exploring, with intent, the addition of a high school.

• Expanding the parent-education program to activate current parents even more in support of the school.

• Serving as the “face of the school” with both internal and external audiences, particularly in support of the school’s growth ambitions as well as desire for greater diversity in its student and adult populations. It will be important for the Head to be well connected in the larger Atlanta independent school world and that of AMI-USA.

DESIRED SKILLS AND PERSONAL CHARACTERISTICS

• A collaborative leader who seeks broad input whenever possible, but also can be decisive when necessary.

• A charismatic, cheerful spokesperson who can exude enthusiasm and make the compelling case for the Montessori program of the school.

• Someone committed to Montessori pedagogy and practices, ideally with classroom experience and AMI training.

• Financial literacy and experience sufficient to partner with the Board and Business Manager to develop and execute budgets.

• Familiarity with advancement practices in independent schools including marketing/recruitment/fundraising and community engagement.

• Proven ability to hire, motivate, evaluate, and develop excellent talent on the team.

• Experience with effective approaches to diversity, equity, and inclusion.

• Ability to be both a visionary strategic leader and an effective hands-on manager.
