Principal Back to Jobs

Central Alberta Christian High School (CACHS) is looking for a principal who displays strong spiritual leadership, communicates clearly, and can work effectively with a parent governed school board. The principal role at CACHS would include some teaching time as well.  Our Christian education philosophy is to train children for a life of obedience to their calling in this world as image bearers of God.  We believe in the authority of the Bible as the true word of God and teach this in all subject areas. Our vision at CACHS is “Striving for Excellence Through Christ” and our mission is to provide “Transformative Education within a Christian Community.”

Central Alberta Christian High School is located in Lacombe, Alberta, Canada. It was established in the fall of 1989 and presently consists of 73 students in Grade 10-12. The school building offers a wide breadth of educational opportunities via a full-size gymnasium, computer labs, carpentry and mechanics shops, a library, a food studies facility, a science lab, a multipurpose room, and regular classrooms.  We are  members of Christian Schools International, Prairie Centre for Christian Education and Association of Independent Schools and Colleges in Alberta since 1988.
