The School of The Blessed Sacrament, New York, NY

The Opportunity:

The Angeletti Group invites nominations and applications for the position of Head of School for the School of the

Blessed Sacrament (SBS). The school seeks an engaging, strategic and inspirational leader to build upon its venerable history of providing a rigorous education, rooted in the Catholic faith, to young children. Reporting directly to the Manhattan Regional Superintendent of Schools, s/he will be responsible for external relations, fundraising, financial management, recruitment, and enrollment, as well as setting the overall vision and strategy for the school. 

The School of the Blessed Sacrament, which merged with the Sacred Heart of Jesus School in 2019, has two campuses located on the upper west side of Manhattan. It educates students from pre-kindergarten through eighth grade. Operating under the Archdiocese of New York, the school is committed to educating the hearts and minds of its students while empowering them to embrace challenges in a loving, faith-filled environment.

The Head Of School:

The Head of School is the chief executive officer of the School of the Blessed Sacrament and reports to the Board of Trustees. The next Head of School must have a deep commitment to, and keen appreciation for, the values and traditions of Catholic doctrine and moral teachings. The successful candidate must be a strategic and visionary thinker with a transparent, collaborative leadership style. S/he must be an articulate and inspiring communicator, a successful fundraiser, an entrepreneurial recruiter, an innovative enrollment manager, and a seasoned, responsible financial manager. The Head of School is the chief spokesperson for the school, providing visible, personal leadership to the school community and promoting the school to all external constituencies. The successful candidate should have a strong record of intellectual and administrative accomplishments, a broad understanding of educational administrative leadership, and a proven track record of guiding institutions to new levels of success.

Both the heads of SBS’s Lower and Upper Schools will report directly to this position. The primary responsibilities of these individuals are focused on the internal, day-to-day operations of their schools’ academic programming, faculty oversight, and student interactions.

The next Head of School for the School of Blessed Sacrament must be a strategic and visionary leader who will embrace the character, values, and traditions of the SBS community and the Catholic faith and carry them forward in new and exciting ways.
