Head of School
Reports to: Board of Directors
Serves on: Leadership Team
Starts July 2024
KICS vision is to impact the world for Christ by preparing servant leaders who choose character before career, wisdom beyond scholarship, service above self, and a lifestyle of participation over apathy.
Located in Rwanda, a country that has set clear and challenging goals for its future development and growing in its influence across the region, KICS is positioned to play an increasingly important role in supporting these aspirations through nurturing the servant leaders required to make this a reality.
Building upon the solid foundation and good work underway at KICS, the new Head of School will have the opportunity to provide strong visionary, spiritual, and strategic leadership, by articulating the school’s guiding principles (the KICS way), promoting its vision and value proposition, and by inspiring, encouraging, and caring for the students, faculty, staff, families, and friends that encompass the entire KICS community.
The Head of School is responsible for overseeing the operations of the school and providing spiritual, educational, and administrative leadership to the school. It is the job of the Head of School to inspire, lead, and direct all phases of the school’s operations, programs, budget, personnel, and environment in accordance with the direction and policies established by the KICS Board.
In addition, the Head of School is entrusted with maintaining and encouraging the school’s Christian ethos through spiritual leadership of the school.
The Head of School is appropriately remunerated including additional benefits (for example related to travel and housing).
The Head of School will continue the required momentum to achieve the full possibilities of the new “Vision for the Future” Campus and strengthen the school community’s appreciation and understanding of the KICS Way. This leader will nurture and perpetuate KICS’ intentional culture, steward the school and its resources with integrity, consider the priorities of the school when faced with difficult decisions.
