Christian Family Montessori School, an independent, AMI-recognized school located in Washington, D.C, seeks a creative, collaborative, and caring head of school to lead our diverse community of parents, children, and staff.
Founded in 1981, CFMS serves 100 students from ages 3-12. Our mission is to provide an affordable Montessori school where children will be prepared to meet the academic, social, and moral challenges ahead of them. The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, a Montessori-based curriculum that nurtures each child’s loving relationship with God, is an integral part of CFMS. Inclusivity, diversity, accessibility, and respect for others are core values at CFMS, currently reflected in ongoing school-wide anti-bias work.
The ideal candidate will have Montessori education experience, preferably in a leadership role. He or she will nurture CFMS through excellent communication and partnership-building skills, strategic thinking, and the ability to foster a warm, loving environment dedicated to meeting the needs of CFMS students. Experience in fundraising and donor engagement are especially valuable, as we expect the Director to devise and implement strategies focused on maintaining the affordability and accessibility of education at CFMS. Training as an AMI teacher, and/or in the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, is desirable, but not required. To learn more about CFMS, the role of the Director, and how to apply, please visit http://www.cfmschool.org/directorsearch.html. Applications are due January 15th.
