As the largest Episcopal parish day school in the country, Holy Innocents’ Episcopal School (HIES) educates more than 1,350 students from age 3 to grade 12. The school offers a balanced college preparatory program to 525 Upper School students, emphasizing academics, athletics, arts, and spiritual growth. Rooted in the Episcopal tradition, HIES is known for its welcoming, supportive environment and commitment to the common good.
Founded in 1959 as a parish preschool, Holy Innocents’ has grown into one of Atlanta’s foremost independent schools. Enrolling 1,364 students, HIES is deeply committed to “Balanced Excellence” in its education of young people.
Situated on a 43-acre campus 20 minutes north of downtown Atlanta, HIES is a forward thinking school with the resources to support best practices in teaching and learning. A $22M capital campaign led to the opening of a new, 64,000-square-foot STEM building in 2015, and the Upper School’s 74 full-time faculty are a diverse and talented group.
The school prides itself on living its mission, and members of the school community believe the nurturing environment contributes to the success of graduates in college and beyond.
For a position to begin in July 2018, HIES is seeking an engaged, student-centered principal to lead its rapidly growing Upper School. This is an exciting career opportunity for an experienced, strategic educator who is eager to serve a mission-driven institution with high academic standards and a great dedication to the moral and ethical education of its students.
