The Agnes Irwin School invites nominations and applications for the position of Head of School.
Since the School’s founding in 1869, The Agnes Irwin School has dedicated itself to providing an exceptional and empowering education for girls. Rooted in academic excellence, scholarship, community, and collaboration, AIS consistently tailors its programs to the distinctive and individual needs of girls, always holding fast to the principle that a girl’s educational journey from childhood through graduation should be joyful, challenging, creative, and inspirational. The school is located on a beautiful campus in Philadelphia’s Main Line suburbs, allowing AIS students and faculty to benefit from access to the comprehensive cultural, educational, environmental, and industry resources that the Philadelphia area provides.
Enrolling more than 570 girls in pre-kindergarten through grade 12, The Agnes Irwin School is a leader in all-girls education, using research-based practices to provide the best possible experience for students. A student to faculty ratio of 6:1 ensures that each girl is known within a community prioritizing leadership development, character, and respect. The School employs 97 faculty members, of which 84 percent hold advanced degrees, and 62 staff members, all dedicated to empowering girls to learn, to lead, and to live a legacy.
Reporting to the Board of Trustees, the Head of School will provide the leadership and vision to advance The Agnes Irwin School’s mission while stewarding its human, intellectual, and financial capital with energy, warmth, and a spirit of innovation. The next Head will oversee the academic program, enrollment management strategies, and fundraising opportunities to ensure that AIS continues to lead in girls’ education. The most qualified candidate will be passionate about the well-being of students, an effective and compelling communicator, a visible champion for the school community, a seasoned manager, and a strong fundraiser with demonstrated experience as a dynamic and entrepreneurial leader.
The expected start date for this opportunity is July 1, 2020. For consideration, please send all nominations and applications confidentially to:
