Founded in 2005 and sponsored by the Diocese of Dallas, John Paul II High School is a pre-eminent, coeducational preparatory school serving 750 students in grades 9-12. With an experienced new Board chair, a prioritization of best-in-class school governance, and the appointment of seasoned school leader Karl Ertle for a one-year interim post, John Paul II is well-positioned as it seeks a long-term President.
The school operates in the President and Principal model and seeks an entrepreneurial president with exceptional poise, presence, and communications skills. To qualify, you will need to be a practicing Catholic, accomplished servant-leader with a portfolio of leadership success, and experience working with a high-level fiduciary Board.
The President serves as the chief executive officer of the school and is responsible for the operational vitality for the school, including advancement, enrollment, marketing, finances, and capital projects. The President leads and articulates the school's mission and vision, creates, and implements strategic plans, and builds and nurtures constituent and stakeholder relationships on and off campus. The President also bears ultimate responsibility for the school's Catholic identity and is supported by a robust senior leadership team in carrying out these responsibilities.
The Board welcomes candidates from other Catholic, charter, or independent schools as well as accomplished executives from various mission-critical career venues such as higher education; non-profit foundations, associations, charities and the like; or, the corporate, civic, and professional services arenas. While knowledge of education and school operations is preferred, other qualities and experiences are also valued, especially visionary, entrepreneurial leadership and the ability to inspire, lead a high-performing team, and create demand for the extraordinary gifts of a John Paul II education.

Candidates are expected to be available to assume the responsibilities of the position in Summer 2024 or earlier.
