Assistant Chaplain

Episcopal High School
Alexandria VA United States
9-12; Boarding
Position Starts: August 20, 2020
Application Deadline: February 1, 2020

Episcopal High School seeks candidates for the position of chaplain for the 2020-21 school year.

The mission of Episcopal High School is “to prepare young people to become discerning individuals with the intellectual and moral courage to lead principled lives of leadership and service to others.” The assistant chaplain’s primary responsibility, as a member of the chaplain team, is to enrich the spiritual life of the community through planning and participation in school chapel services, teaching theology classes, and providing pastoral care to members of the school community. In addition, the chaplain identifies and promotes the school’s service learning efforts—both weekly service opportunities and service trips.

Other attendant responsibilities of full-time faculty in a boarding school environment, such as dorm duty and coaching/afternoon activity involvement, apply.

Qualified candidates will have ordination or planned ordination in the Episcopal Church, or other Christian denomination, hold a master’s degree in divinity, and have 3 to 5 years of experience as a school chaplain or teacher. 

References should speak to the candidate’s capacity and eagerness to work creatively and effectively in a boarding school environment. The salary offered will include a full benefits package and will be competitive and commensurate with experience.
