Head of School

Saint Francis Classical Catholic Academy

Saint Francis Classical Catholic Academy, in formation and opening September 2023, is seeking a Headmaster to develop and lead the school in its educational mission. At present the school consists of a pre-k and kindergarten, and up until several years ago was a K-8 school. We are one of the oldest operating Catholic schools in the thirteen colonies. 

We seek to reopen the full school in a classical Catholic model. The Board of Directors appoints the Headmaster to serve as the educational and administrative leader of the school. 

The Headmaster must be a practicing Catholic loyal to the Magisterium of the Catholic Church in both personal conduct and public witness, embrace the mission of the school as defined by the Board, have energy, strong leadership and people skills and have a relentless commitment to classical Catholic education. 

The Board of Directors is looking to hire a qualified candidate no later than January 1, 2022.

Salary negotiable, commensurate with background and experience.

José Benlliure Ortiz, “Leaving Mass in Rocafort,” 1915

On Suffering and Hope and Forever

‘In the Eucharist the sacrifice of Christ becomes also the sacrifice of the members of his Body. The lives of the faithful, their praise, sufferings, prayer, and work, are united with those of Christ and with his total offering, and so acquire a new value. Christ’s sacrifice present on the altar makes it possible for all generations of Christians to be united with his offering.’ (CCC 1368)
