Head of School

Good Shepherd Episcopal School
Austin, TX United States

For over 75 years, Good Shepherd Episcopal School (GSES), a parish day school and ministry of the Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd, has provided a quality experience for children of Austin, Texas. In a close supportive relationship with the Church, GSES wants every child to feel fully known and fully loved as they explore, create, imagine, and feel successful supported by the friendship of their classmates and love of their teachers. The secret sauce of GSES is the strong sense of a caring community which is present at every level of the school.

Good Shepherd seeks an experienced early childhood educator as their next Head of School.

The next Head of School will be expected to develop a strong relationship with the faculty and to lead them in advancing the mission of the school. Maintaining and cultivating the already close, constructive relationship with the Church is critical. The Head will be expected to strengthen the academic program while maintaining the focus on an intentional, play-based curriculum. In a small school like GSES, knowing the students, families, and faculty is critically important.
