We have been retained by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Dallas to lead the search for the next president of John Paul II High School in Plano, TX. Founded in 2005, JPII is a relatively young school that is building a powerful brand and legacy in a very competitive education environment. Known locally for its high performing and inclusive culture, the school educates upwards of 700 young men and women annually and prides itself on its outstanding academic, athletic, and arts programs. This is an outstanding opportunity for an entrepreneurial leader with passion for mission and Catholic identity to build on this growing legacy and take this fine school to the next level.
The school operates in the President/Principal Model. The next president will have a strong and collaborative team in place that is eager to support new leadership.
To qualify for this exceptional opportunity, you will need to be a practicing Catholic and accomplished servant leader with passion for the vital mission of Catholic schools. The diocese welcomes candidates from other Catholic or independent schools and dioceses as well as accomplished executives from other mission-critical career venues such as higher education; non-profit foundations, associations, charities and the like; or the corporate, civic, and professional services arenas. While knowledge of education and school operations is preferred, other qualities and experiences are also valued, especially visionary, entrepreneurial leadership and the ability to inspire, lead a high performing team, and create demand for the extraordinary gifts of a Catholic education. The position profile is under development and will be posted soon.
We will be pleased to schedule an exploratory conversation or to receive a formal application. All inquiries and nominations will be strictly confidential.
Interested and qualified candidates should submit electronically in one email and as separate documents (preferably PDFs) the following materials:
A thoughtful cover letter expressing interest in this particular position;
A current résumé;
A one-page statement of educational or leadership philosophy and practice;
A list of five professional references with name, phone number, and email address of each (references will not be contacted until a serious mutual interest is established and not without the candidate’s permission)
