St. John the Baptist Catholic Montessori School seeks a principal starting in the 2022-2023 school year. St. John the Baptist serves students from 16 months to eighth grade and enrolls 117 students with a professional staff of 17 teachers. Catholic education is at the heart of the evangelizing mission of the Church to "Go and make disciples" (Mt 28:19).
Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis are vital to the evangelizing mission of the Church. They strive to provide an education that is authentically Catholic: a formation of the whole person in the light of Jesus Christ. The mission of St. John the Baptist Catholic Montessori School is to prepare students to live out the Gospel message, achieve academic excellence, and joyfully lead by faith, virtue, reason.
However, "The project of the Catholic school is convincing only if carried out by people who are deeply motivated, because they witness to a living encounter with Christ" (Congregation for Catholic Education, 1997). The successful candidate will establish, demonstrate, and promote the highest standards of excellence in Catholic culture, academics, and organizational leadership. Other requirements include:
A practicing Catholic in good standing with the Catholic Church who is able to provide a credible witness of the Catholic Faith
A deep commitment to the importance and mission of Catholic schools
A master's degree in Catholic school leadership or its equivalent (or in progress) preferred
A minimum of three years teaching or administrative experience in Catholic schools

Employment in and by the Church is substantially different from secular employment. Church employees must conduct themselves in a manner which is consistent with and supportive of the mission and purpose of the Church. Their behavior must not violate the faith, morals, or laws of the Church or the Archdiocese, such that can embarrass the Church or give rise to scandal. It is required that this employee be an active, participating Roman Catholic.
