St. Joseph High School is the largest Catholic coeducational secondary school in the state of Connecticut. Founded in 1962 as an educational ministry of the Diocese of Bridgeport, the school has evolved in recent years into a high performing, independently-governed institution with bold aspirations and a desire to play a national leadership role in Catholic education.
The Board of Directors seek a dynamic, entrepreneurial leader with passion for mission to succeed Dr. William Fitzgerald who will be retiring after 10-years of outstanding leadership. To qualify, you will need to be a practicing Catholic with great vision and leadership skills and a desire to take an exceptional school to the next level.
The school operates in the President/Principal Leadership Model. In this increasingly popular structure, the Principal serves as the day-to-day head of academic operations, reporting to the President who functions as the chief executive officer and face of the school to the community. The Directors welcome President candidates from varied mission-critical career platforms including: other Catholic and independent or charter schools; higher education; non-profit foundations, associations, charities and the like; as well as the corporate, civic, and professional services arenas. While deep domain knowledge of secondary education is preferred, other qualities and experiences are also valued, especially visionary, entrepreneurial leadership and the ability to inspire, build high performing teams, and create demand for the unique gifts of a St. Joseph High School education.
