St. Andrew’s Episcopal School in Potomac, MD seeks a Middle and Upper School (grades 6-12) Chaplain, effective July 2020.
The mission of St. Andrew’s Episcopal School is to know and inspire each child in an inclusive community dedicated to exceptional teaching, learning, and service. Founded in 1978, St. Andrew’s is a co-educational independent day school, enrolling approximately 645 students in preschool-grade 12. St. Andrew’s 19-acre Postoak Campus has been enhanced in recent years with the addition of its 43,000sf Student Center and Izzo Quadrangle (2016) and its 31,000sf Lower School (2019).
St. Andrew’s faculty and staff uphold a powerfully innovative, positive culture that challenges and supports one of the most broadly diverse student bodies in greater Washington. The school seeks growth-minded, highly motivated, collaborative faculty and staff that will continue the school’s focus and progress on the development of each student’s full potential. Through its Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning, St. Andrew’s has become a global leader in bridging the gap between Mind, Brain Education (MBE) Science, including training thousands of educators worldwide and cultivating a research-based approach to teaching and learning throughout St. Andrew’s.
As an Episcopal School, we seek to express the faith and perspective of the Episcopal Church in our chapel life, commitment to service-learning, religion curriculum, and in the overall character of our community. We strive to be an inclusive and hospitable community that welcomes and respects students and families from all faiths, including those who do not identify with a particular faith tradition.
The Middle and Upper School Chaplain will lead weekly worship services, teach Religion courses, help to oversee service initiatives and opportunities and provide pastoral care for students and adults. He or she will be a compassionate minister and a dynamic and creative teacher and homilist who enjoys working with adolescents and their teachers and families. The Middle and Upper School Chaplain will have a talent for gracefully communicating the School's inclusive Episcopal identity and supporting our highly diverse community.
