JOB POSITIONS AVAILABLE

Head of School (HoS)

Search facilitated by Nelson/Kraft & Associates Inc.

Langley Christian School (LCS), founded in 1955, provides the high-quality education of the BC Ministry of Education curriculum and directs it through a framework called “Teaching for Transformation.”  Their teaching emphasizes the core competencies from a Christian perspective through Biblical values and authentic learning experiences.  They offer classes from Kindergarten through Grade 12 to local students with a limited number of spots available to international students, take part in regional and provincial athletics programs, and encourage their students to get involved in various service opportunities.

The board, staff, and educators of LCS are committed to living out its mission: to educate students, equipping them to discover their gifts, develop Christ-like discernment, and seek their life’s calling. The organization has been progressing in this mission for over 60 years and its community of supporters are excited about the future, which includes predicted enrolment of 1500 students by 2021!  Their story represents a committed base of parents and alumni who eagerly await the new Head of School to further the LCS mission and vision.

The Board of Directors is looking for a strong leader and dynamic ambassador to partner with them by providing strategic and spiritual leadership towards its mission and ministry.  The Head of School (HoS) must astutely balance vision and sound financial health as the leadership and their supporters anticipate the future of impacting children and youth in a Christian educational environment.  The HoS also has the responsibility and momentous opportunity to use his or her storytelling skills to draw donors and current and prospective strategic allies into playing integral roles in the ongoing, thriving health of LCS.

If you love God and young people, and believe that you have the energy, intelligence, imagination, and passion for undergirding the future of effectively educated and equipped Christ-thinkers then we want to hear from you.

Application Deadline: February 1, 2019
