Surrey Christian School is hiring a Christ-like, visionary and learning-centred Secondary Campus Principal to lead and empower a leadership and staff team at our Secondary 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 dedicated to student learning that inspires students to become fully alive in God’s story. We are located in Surrey, an ethnically diverse urban and suburban community outside of Vancouver. We are a non-denominational Christian school, and our enrolled families represent over 170 different churches. Surrey Christian School is governed by a board of directors representing the Surrey Christian School Society membership. Surrey Christian School was founded on a Reformed worldview of Christianity, and that distinct perspective 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 secondary campus principal will report directly to the superintendent and will be responsible to coordinate, guide and implement the daily educational program of their campus in close consultation with the senior leadership team and campus faculty and staff. His/her focus must be on the improvement of student learning, the safety of faculty, staff and students and on the fulfilment of the strategic plan. The principal is expected to take ownership of their campus in the context of the SCS philosophy, values and goals as well as deal with the day-to-day challenges that may arise. S/he will act as a catalyst in promoting their campus as well as seeking to solve problems.

The successful candidate will have proven strengths in the areas of fostering student learning, integration of biblical worldview in education, leading and empowering staff/faculty, shared decision-making, team building, parent engagement and a passion for Christian education that is contagious.
