Education: Middle/High School, FT Employee
Mercy Education Collaborative of Cincinnati (Cincinnati, OH)
McAULEY HIGH SCHOOL and MOTHER OF MERCY HIGH SCHOOL
The Mercy Education Collaborative of Cincinnati (MECC) announces openings for the principals of McAuley High School and Mother of Mercy High School, with the new principals taking office on July 1, 2014.
McAuley and Mother of Mercy are Catholic college preparatory schools for young women animated by the Gospel and by the charism of the Sisters of Mercy. The schools have distinctive traditions and loyal alumnae. McAuley opened in 1960 in a modern building in College Hill; Mother of Mercy, founded in 1915, occupies a heritage building in Westwood. Yet the schools have similarities beyond their sponsorship by the Sisters of Mercy. Each enrolls about 500 students, uses college-style block schedules, has innovative technology programs, and is a National Blue Ribbon School.
After in-depth studies of each school, the Sisters of Mercy seized an opportunity to take advantage of formal collaboration between the two schools to enhance the excellent education currently offered at each high school and to ensure that both schools will continue to thrive into the future. Through the MECC, the separate schools are under the direction of a single board and a single president. The two new principals must be committed to the vision for this collaboration, which includes
• An enhanced curriculum aligned with ACT benchmarks for college readiness and structured to meet a diverse range of learning needs
• Innovative technology programs fostering maximum development of each student
• Enhanced counseling programs characterized by regular contact from counselors to both students and parents for personalized academic, personal, college, and career counseling
• Diverse learning opportunities through traditional classroom settings, online offerings, and blended learning
Additionally, the principals must be committed to a school culture focused on learning and distinguished by good communication and teamwork.
The two principals will serve as the face of their schools. Together with the MECC Vice President for Academic Affairs, they will form the education leadership team for Mercy secondary education in Cincinnati.
Qualified applicants must be practicing Catholics, possess a Master’s Degree in Education or a related field, hold or be completing principal’s licensure, demonstrate successful experience in school administration, and have teaching experience. Applicants should send to the attention of David Mueller at [email protected] (1) application; (2) letter of introduction; (3) resume; and (4) statement describing The Significance and Importance of Catholic Secondary Education for Young Women. Applicants should indicate whether they are applying at one school or both schools. Applications will be accepted until the positions are filled. Review of applications begins November 18, 2013. Application forms and additional information are available at the “Employment Opportunities” section of the “About” tab at www.mcauleyhs.net and www.motherofmercy.org. Catherine McAuley, the foundress of the Sisters of Mercy, was an innovative leader in women’s education. Be part of this exciting deepening of her spirit in Cincinnati. (86)
