Our Purpose

If you believe wholeheartedly in this mission and are able to fully enjoy and appreciate what makes us unique, we may just be the perfect match!  Get to know us by checking out our website for more information.

 

This Is Where You’d Come In

The Director of Academic Life is responsible for ensuring the implementation of SLOCA’s mission, vision, and values throughout varying aspects of the school. This includes curricula oversight and development of our classical model and our classical educators. As an active presence in all areas of the school, the Director of Academic Life serves as a public face and champion of SLOCA as needed, maintaining a visible presence and communicating with students, parents, teachers, fellow leadership, and classical educators beyond the school.

 

Required Skills and Experience

If you can accomplish the above, you’ve got what it takes. Realistically though, you need an advanced degree in a related field and 10+ years of experience in education, at least 4 of which are in educational leadership, and 8+ years with the classical model. We’re looking for a people person who engages others and communicates both efficiently and respectfully. The ideal candidate is part prioritizing, problem-solving, excellence-achieving machine and part dare-taking, mistake-making, grace-giving, growth-minded human being.  Passion for and a commitment to our mission are absolute musts!
