JOB DESCRIPTION

Covington Latin School, operating under the auspices of the Roman Catholic Bishop of the Diocese of Covington, is a Catholic, coeducational, college preparatory day school offering a classical education that accelerates students by as much as two years. Students can enter CLS any time after the fifth grade. CLS offers two “Prep Years” (roughly equivalent to grades 7 and 8), and Forms 1 through 4 (equivalent to grades 9 through 12).

Given the incredibly wide-ranging ability and needs of children who happen to be the same age, Covington Latin strongly believes that academic decisions should be guided by academic criteria rather than age alone. Latin School’s unique accelerated program is designed to provide academically motivated students the opportunity to enter after completing the fifth, sixth, or seventh grade. Incoming Covington Latin School students accelerate one to two years as a condition of admission, and thereby graduate one to two years earlier than their peers in traditional upper schools.

Coursework is entirely college preparatory and is considered the equivalent of honors-level coursework in traditional upper schools. Covington Latin has been profiled in US News and World Report, featured as a “Cool School” by Fox 19 Cincinnati, and ranked the #1 private school in Northern Kentucky by Cincinnati Magazine. For additional information on this distinguished classical school, please visit the school’s website at http://www.covingtonlatin.org.

QUALIFICATIONS

The candidates we seek will have experience leading academically rigorous curriculums, while demonstrating a comfort and capacity addressing the challenges facing most Catholic schools, specifically in mission-critical areas related to business, finance, facilities, enrollment management and advancement initiatives. The next Headmaster must have demonstrated proficiency in building and maintaining community relationships that will ensure Covington Latin School’s continued accessibility, success, and sustainability through the effective stewardship of its parent, alumni, and local community philanthropic constituencies.
