Ascension Episcopal School in Lafayette, Louisiana, seeks a Head of School to lead a community of approximately 800 PK12th grade students, commencing July 1, 2019. Recognized locally as one of the finest parish day schools in the area, Ascension is an outreach ministry of the Episcopal Church of the Ascension.
Celebrating almost 60 years of academic excellence, Ascension is the largest Episcopal school in the Diocese of Western Louisiana and draws students from a 60-mile radius covering 27 cities in five south Louisiana parishes. Through regular chapel services and religious instruction, Ascension provides opportunities for all students to grow spiritually and to become young men and women of faith and character.
The next Head of School will inherit a state-of-the-art institution that is poised for continued growth and success. The successful candidate must enthusiastically support Ascension’s mission of educational excellence in a Christian environment and must be committed to that mission in all aspects of the school’s daily operations, building upon the significant accomplishments of the past decade.
Ascension’s Head is expected to be the inspirational leader of the school—broadly informed about academic matters and possessing both a moral and an educational vision to take the school forward in the 21st century. The Head of School reports to the Board of Trustees and is responsible for oversight of all academic, extracurricular, enrollment, and personnel matters, as well as management of the school budget, external relations, and fundraising.
