Maternity of Mary - Saint Andrew Catholic School
Location: Saint Paul, Minnesota
Type: Full Time
Maternity of Mary - Saint Andrew Catholic School seeks a principal starting in the 2022-2023 school year.
Maternity of Mary - Saint Andrew Catholic School serves students in preschool through 8th grade and enrolls 171 students with a professional staff of 33. Catholic education is at the heart of the evangelizing mission of the Church to “Go and make disciples” (Mt 28:19).
Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis are vital to the evangelizing mission of the Church. They strive to provide an education that is authentically Catholic: a formation of the whole person in the light of Jesus Christ. In answering the call of Jesus Christ, Maternity of Mary – Saint Andrew Catholic School is dedicated to providing a Catholic education that develops the unique God-given gifts of each student. In partnership with engaged families and a supportive parish, the school provides an environment that inspires and upholds spiritual growth, academic excellence, service, and social responsibility.
However, “The project of the Catholic school is convincing only if carried out by people who are deeply motivated, because they witness to a living encounter with Christ” (Congregation for Catholic Education, 1997). The successful candidate will establish, demonstrate, and promote the highest standards of excellence in Catholic culture, academics, and organizational leadership. Other requirements include:
A practicing Catholic in good standing with the Catholic Church who is able to provide a credible witness of the Catholic Faith
A deep commitment to the importance and mission of Catholic schools
A master’s degree in Catholic school leadership or its equivalent (or in progress) preferred
A minimum of three years teaching or administrative experience in Catholic schools preferred
Employment in and by the Church is substantially different from secular employment. Church employees must conduct themselves in a manner which is consistent with and supportive of the mission and purpose of the Church. Their behavior must not violate the faith, morals, or laws of the Church or the Archdiocese, such that can embarrass the Church or give rise to scandal. It is required that this employee be an active, participating Roman Catholic.
To apply for the position, please submit an application via the Archdiocesan Catholic Education Careers Portal by February 11, 2022. Applicants will be asked to provide a resume with three professional references, a cover letter and a letter of good standing from their pastor.
