Academic Dean Job Description Sample
St. Paul Academy and Summit School seeks candidates for the position of Academic Dean for the Upper School (grades 9-12). This is a full-time, 11-month position, which includes teaching one course, and the start date is July 1, 2018.
A robust and stimulating academic program is central to the mission of SPA and the reason that families choose this school. The academic program is embedded within a rich student community with varied opportunities for engagement and citizenship, and students are supported along their academic journey as they develop social and emotional skills and strategies.
As leader of the Upper School, the Principal delegates to and is supported by the three key leaders--Counselor, Dean of Students, and Academic Dean--who provide an integrated approach to Upper School student development and program, taking into consideration community citizenship, academic progress, and social/emotional health. Typically, the three work in close collaboration to integrate the three crucial facets of student development; each one serves as point person with respect to one aspect of the Upper School program, with the other two serving as partners and consultants.
The Upper School Academic Dean is responsible for supporting student academic development and articulating and developing the vision of an innovative Upper School curriculum as the culmination of the K-12 academic journey that pushes and challenges students to innovate, engage, and collaborate, informed by the complexities of the future. Areas of responsibility include developing and overseeing the Upper School curriculum, academic reporting, and academic program logistics; developing and coordinating professional development for faculty in creative and student-centered pedagogy and curriculum design that builds student engagement and takes advantage of longer blocks of time and effective integration of technology; overseeing student placement, scheduling, and academic supports and accommodations; articulating and implementing values, policies and practices that support student academic honesty; and participating in conversations about admission, diversity and inclusion, calendar, and others as needed.
Successful candidates should bring a record of excellence as a teacher within their own area of expertise, an innovative and creative approach to thinking about curriculum needs and opportunities across all disciplines, and an ability to integrate the flourishing technological opportunities with the liberal arts. Their professional experience in schools should demonstrate increasing administrative responsibilities, such that serving as Academic Dean is the logical next step in their career. Candidates should possess excellent interpersonal and communication skills with students, teachers, parents, and administrators.
Candidates are expected to carry out the mission of SPA, "Shaping the minds and hearts of the people who will change the world," to support the vision of the Upper School and to contribute to the life of the school outside of the classroom.
Please submit the following information with your application to be considered: letter of interest, resume, education philosophy, transcripts and a list of references.
