Who We Are
Vancouver Christian School is a large, diverse K-12 school located in Vancouver, British Columbia. A vibrant and close-knit community of 800 students, VCS is a proud leader in Christian education celebrating 70 years of history in the region. From the early days of our Christian Reformed roots to the building of a new, modern campus in the heart of Vancouver, VCS is dedicated to preparing students for a life of transformation and service through excellent, Christ-centred education.
We are in an exciting period of growth and transition following the completion of our new full K-12 campus in 2018. We are focused on delivering high quality elementary, middle school and high school programs supported by an excellent teaching staff who are passionate about equipping students for the future.
An exciting opportunity in an exciting time
We are seeking a dynamic, experienced leader in Christian education to serve as our new Superintendent commencing in the 2020/21 school year due to our current Superintendent retiring after 18 years of exemplary leadership.
To serve in this role, you will have demonstrated your strong ability to set a strategic vision and inspire your team to achieve student focused goals within a K-12 Christian educational setting. Your superior leadership, interpersonal and communication skills coupled with wise and decisive decision-making abilities will be the keys to your success in continuing to build the strong community that is VCS.
As an experienced administrator, you will bring your strong business acumen and systems thinking to this role to ensure all financial, legal and regulatory requirements are well managed. Your leadership in Christian education pedagogy and understanding of leading educational practices based on research and best practices will ensure the continuation of VCS’ reputation for academic and program excellence.
And finally, the right person for VCS will be one who has a deep care and love for children and teens and wants to be part of a fun, enthusiastic, dedicated team of staff. From serving pot luck lunches to weeding to water fights in the backfield, you desire to be an integral part of our wonderful community.
To be considered for this role, you will have a Master’s degree in educational leadership or a suitable equivalent combination of skills, knowledge, and experience as well as hold or be able to obtain the British Columbia Professional Teachers’ Certificate or transferable equivalent.
Most importantly, you will be able to demonstrate your commitment to a Christ-centred life through your involvement in your faith community and your understanding and acknowledgment of the mission, vision and community standards of VCS.
