Head of School St. Anne’s Episcopal School invites nominations and applications for the position of Head of School. St. Anne’s Episcopal School provides students in Preschool through grade eight with a dynamic, robust, and developmentally appropriate educational experience which prepares them well for high school and lifelong learning. With a focus on enhancing the intellectual, spiritual, physical, social, and artistic growth of its students, St. Anne’s empowers children to realize their potential for good as citizens of local communities and the world. Small classes in a caring community of creative and engaging teachers ensure that each student receives the benefits of an individualized academic program grounded in the rich history of intellectual inquiry that characterizes Anglican education. A robust arts, athletics and activities program rounds out opportunities for St. Anne’s students, who graduate equipped not only with extraordinary competence but also with the drive to serve others and to make a difference in the world. St. Anne’s Episcopal School sits on a stunning 125-acre campus in Middletown, Delaware. Along with the school building, constructed in 2002 (addition in 2018), the campus includes premier outdoor education space, an outdoor chapel, multi-sport athletic fields, learning pavilion, woodlands, agricultural land and a nature preserve. The school was founded in 2002 by educators at St. Andrew’s School, a prestigious boarding school located just across Silver Lake from the St. Anne’s campus. St. Anne’s is situated in one of the fastest growing areas of the Mid-Atlantic and centrally located near a wide range of communities: small-town charm in Odessa, the nearby planned community of Whitehall, Galena and Chestertown in Maryland, urban life in Wilmington, or rural settings dotted with horse farms.
The school’s location in Middletown offers easy access to cultural and historical offerings in Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington, D.C. as well as the natural beauty of the Chesapeake Bay, Maryland’s Eastern Shore and Delaware’s popular beach towns. The Head of School reports to the Board of Trustees and will be responsible for providing a vision to advance the school’s mission of preparing students for lifelong learning.
The Head of School will lead St. Anne’s 67 skilled and caring faculty and staff members who support the school’s 250 students, while overseeing the academic program, enrollment, strategic planning, and fundraising opportunities. The most qualified candidate will be an experienced leader with strong academic and administrative experience, demonstrate an ability to build relationships with multiple constituent groups, show a strong and demonstrated commitment to diversity and inclusion, have a proven record of championing the value of independent school education, and embrace the Episcopalian values of the school.
