Saint Basil Academy is a college preparatory high school for young women, sponsored by the Sisters of Saint Basil the Great, and rooted in the Ukrainian Byzantine tradition of the Catholic Church. Founded in 1931, the academy is situated on 44 spacious acres in the country-like suburban setting of Jenkintown, Pennsylvania, just 10 miles from center-city Philadelphia. This safe, warm, welcoming, and family-spirit filled community is home to almost 250 young women from Montgomery, Bucks and Philadelphia counties in Pennsylvania and from various counties in nearby New Jersey.
The ideal candidate will have a passion for Catholic education, particularly the single gender secondary education of young women, possess an understanding of the Head of School model of administration, and be comfortable working with a committed Advisory Board, Board of Trustees and the Sisters of Saint Basil the Great. He or She must be experienced with strategic planning and have executive level experience in a college preparatory setting. With a visible executive presence in and outside of the school community, the Head of School must be able to advance the marketing and advancement initiatives of the school in this highly-competitive market.
Additionally, the successful candidate will have expertise in academic, business, and financial management, as well as a proven track record of acquiring funds through the solicitation of major gifts and capital campaign contributions. The Head of School will advance Saint Basil Academy by identifying, cultivating, and developing community partnerships and philanthropic support that will ensure its continued success in providing its respected Basilian education for future generations of the young women of the Greater Philadelphia region.
Candidates are expected to be available to assume the responsibilities of the position by July 1, 2017. Applications will be accepted until February 12, 2017.
