St. Martin’s Episcopal School seeks a leader who can inspire those around him/her, communicate clearly and effectively, and bring people together for a common purpose. The Head will be expected to provide vision and implement innovative solutions to increase St. Martin’s enrollment; uphold standards of excellence; and effectively recruit, retain, lead, and coach faculty, administrators, and staff. Possessing a warm, approachable personality and passion for education, St. Martin’s next Head should be able to lead innovative financial and strategic planning for the School with the fortitude and enthusiasm needed to garner new financial resources and achieve ambitious goals.

Founded in 1947, St. Martin’s is a coeducational, independent school that provides students from 8 weeks to grade 12 with a college preparatory education focused on development of the whole person. St. Martin’s students and faculty embrace the school’s motto, “Faith, Scholarship, and Service.” Although students of all faiths are welcomed and respected, St. Martin’s is committed to its Episcopal identity, and students attend chapel regularly and have religious instruction in the Episcopal tradition.

One of St. Martin’s greatest strengths is its strong community, a diverse group of individuals with many gifts and talents who celebrate their shared values and commitment to core principles. St. Martin’s values inclusivity and practices it throughout the school, ensuring that all students have opportunities to lead and learn. While its students come from all walks of life, St. Martin’s is a place where all belong.

Located on a beautiful 18 acre campus in Metairie, a suburb of New Orleans, facilities include a chapel, 500-seat theater, visual arts building, indoor swimming pool, two full-size gymnasiums, lighted football field, all-weather track, amphitheater, student center, two libraries, multiple playgrounds, three science labs, the Steam Lab, and the Gibbs Family Center for Innovation + Design, the first building in the region dedicated to design thinking and prototyping for students in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade.
