Southern Teachers is assisting St. Johns Country Day School in the search for its next Head of School. St. Johns Country Day School sits on 26 picturesque acres just off the banks of the St. Johns River, the longest river in Florida and one of the most famous north-flowing rivers in the world. Like its namesake, St. Johns Country Day School has a storied history of defying expectations. Though all graduates go to college, fit is more important than prestige. Though the school’s academic reputation is excellent, students may also reach the highest levels of artistic and athletic pursuits. Though St. Johns is a school of three divisions, it is decidedly one school in culture and program. St. Johns seeks a Head of School who will continue to deliver the school’s promise of being college prep, redefined.
St. Johns excels because of its highly qualified, committed, and respected faculty; outstanding leadership in all three divisions; and nurturing family environment. Students benefit from close relationships with teachers, small classes, and a curriculum that is both broad and deep. St. Johns is intentionally small and programmatically large. Students are encouraged and supported to pursue their passions in the classroom, on the field, and in the community.
The successful candidate for Head of School at St. Johns will have strong executive leadership skills while valuing the school’s family atmosphere. He or she will continue to push what is possible while respecting the culture and traditions of an established school. The best candidate will be a connector, both within the St. Johns community and in the larger Orange Park and Jacksonville areas. With the right leadership in place, the ceiling for what St. Johns can become is incredibly high.
Questions and inquiries are welcome. Contact Mr. Jamie Estes at Estes@SouthernTeachers.com or 434-295-9122.
