    Principal – (FT – Greenville)

    If your mission includes a passion for achieving life-changing results for students, and you could picture yourself leading one of the only Catholic Elementary Schools in America with a 100% high school graduation rate and a 100% college acceptance rate, and you resonate strongly with the Parish commitment of every student becoming a future Christian leader, then apply here.

    St. Anthony of Padua Catholic School in Greenville, SC (https://www.visitgreenvillesc.com/) is seeking a new principal for the 2018-19 school year. St. Anthony School was founded in 1951 to address the educational needs of a mostly minority neighborhood, and the student body is largely African-American and Baptist.

    The education provided at St. Anthony School is rigorous and academically challenging, infused with a strong Franciscan philosophy where God, faith and service are integral to the school’s culture, and all members of the school community share this vision. The school’s graduates, from its inception, have achieved a 90% graduation rate, and college acceptance, and for the last 7 years, a 100% rate…due to its high academic standards as well as the affirming, family-based culture among the school’s students, faculty, staff, parents and volunteers.

    Following a capital campaign, a $6.2million, 26,000 sq-ft school was completed in 2013, and has continued its unique mission: to educate and inspire strong Christian servant leaders for the future. St. Anthony School is populated by amazing students, faculty and staff, and enjoys exceptional parish community support (fundraising, volunteers, etc.) and a tremendous reputation among the schools in Greenville county. This translates into strong funding by people both within and outside the parish and community, but who wholeheartedly support the unique mission, as the school does not depend upon student tuition.

    The Principal will be responsible for carrying out the vision, mission and standards of St. Anthony School, as stated and set by the Parish and the Diocese of Charleston. He/she will have a wonderful opportunity to bring creativity and innovation to a school that is already doing very well; there are no ‘big issues’ to fix – only a desire to make it even stronger, and to shepherd the powerful legacy of developing successful Christian leaders who will model what they learned while at St. Anthony School in their future lives and careers.

    If participating in this powerful mission and legacy sounds like something you can and want to do, then St. Anthony School (http://www.stanthonygreenvillesc.org/)may very well be the place for you.

    Because of the nature of this particular job and the organization in which the position resides, certain ‘must have’ criteria are critical that would normally not be required as a part of a non-sectarian organization.

    1. Be a Practicing Catholic
    2. Have a minimum of a Master’s Degree in Education or School Administration
    3. Experience as Principal of a Public or Private School (preferably Elementary School) and certified in South Carolina or a reciprocal state
    4. Experience as a successful classroom teacher of elementary (preferred) or middle school
    5. Ability to provide strong instructional leadership that is standards-based (in depth understanding of curriculum, instruction and assessment)
    6. Collaborative leadership style using a servant leadership approach
    7. Ability to model and promote continuous learning among faculty and staff
    8. Ability to work with diverse student, parent and teacher populations
    9. Expectation of success for all students and families
    10. Strong relationship builder of staff, faculty, volunteers and families
    11. Ability and willingness to participate in fund development activities (grant writing, presentations, networking in the geographic community, the education community and the Catholic community, etc.) that support and sustain the mission of the school
    If you believe the mission of St. Anthony’s intersects with your calling, please apply online with a cover letter and resume. Apply here: https://smartwork.talentnest.com/en/posting/31251/location/42207

    St. Anthony School is accredited through the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI), an accreditation division of AdvancED.
