Closing Date: February 28, 2019 Starting date: August, 2019
Surrey Christian School is seeking a visionary and learning-centered leader to work collaboratively on a campus administrative team that provides instructional leadership and school management for our 500-student Fleetwood elementary campus. Our mission statement: Educating for wholeness by engaging God’s world in the servant way of Jesus shapes everything we do. Surrey Christian School is a growing school community with a strong staff and faculty dedicated to student learning that inspires students to become fully alive in God’s story. As a school community, we strive to be a ‘people of try’ in our approach to pedagogical innovation and improving student learning. We are located in north Surrey, an ethnically diverse urban and suburban community just outside of Vancouver. There are over 150 different churches represented in Surrey Christian School, a non-denominational Christian school with an open enrolment policy governed by a 12-member board of directors representing the Surrey Christian School Society membership. Surrey Christian School was founded on a Reformed worldview of Christianity and it is that distinct perspective that shapes our vision. Our confidence in this particular vision of God working in our world has inspired us to open our enrolment to families from other faiths.

The successful candidate will have proven strengths in many of the following areas: fostering student learning, integration of biblical worldview in education, managing budgets and organizing scheduling details, leading and empowering staff/faculty, shared decision-making, team building, parent engagement, building a positive student culture, working with student discipline, and a passion for Christian education that is contagious.
The position will in involve approximately 60% teaching and 40% administrative time. The teaching responsibilities would most likely be at the K-3 level and the administrative time would have a strong K-3 focus.
