Corpus Christi, a Roman Catholic community of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter, is establishing a classical high school in Charleston, SC and seeking to hire a full time Head of School. Corpus Christi Academy will open in fall 2021, with the position of Head of School to be filled fall 2020. Prior to school opening, the Head of School will work closely with the Pastor and Advisory Board in hiring faculty; compiling classical, Catholic curriculum; recruiting students; compiling student/family handbook; preparing classroom and administrative space; and fundraising. Once class commences the Head of School will be responsible for overseeing and managing curriculum; faculty; community relations; and principally the students’ academic experience. The Head of School will be the students’ and parents’ main point of contact and expected to be present for the majority of the school day. The Head of School will also be the face of the school to the community and therefore must display a competent, comfortable, and enthusiastic knowledge of classical education.


The Head of School must be a practicing Catholic with significant experience in secondary education, with a particular knowledge of implementing an integrated, classical curriculum at the high school level. The ideal candidate will possess classroom teaching experience, administrative experience, and specific knowledge and enthusiasm for the classical curriculum.
