The Basilica School of St. Paul located in Daytona Beach, on the beautiful east coast of Florida, is seeking a principal to lead the school beginning July 1, 2023. The Basilica School, founded in 1925 by the Sisters of St. Dominic of Blauvelt, New York is a multicultural urban school of 173 co-ed students in grades Pre-K to 8.
The Basilica School is accredited by the Florida Catholic Conference. Its mission is to assist parents in fulfilling their obligation to educate the children that God has entrusted to them. Parents are the primary source from which children derive their values; parents entrust their children to us to continue and complement the education that began at home. We encourage each child to achieve his/her potential -spiritually, intellectually, personally, socially, and physically. The Basilica School of St. Paul is an integral part of the parish. It is therefore the mission of the Basilica School in conjunction with the parents and guardians of our children inspired by Saint Paul and rooted in our Catholic Faith, to seek to know, love, and serve Jesus Christ through academic excellence and our persistence in serving His people.
Applications for the position of Principal are currently being accepted from qualified candidates who have the demonstrated knowledge, skills and experience of leading people and teams, planning and executing budgets, and collaborating with parents and stakeholders. Candidates must be practicing Catholics committed to Catholic education, possess an advanced degree in Educational Leadership and have at least three years of Catholic School administrator experience. Candidates must be eligible for Florida certification. Salary will be commensurate with experience and qualifications, according to Diocesan salary policy.
