Principal of Holy Rosary Parochial School


The Parish of Pope St. John Paul II in Idaho Falls, ID is seeking a principal for its school, Holy Rosary Parochial School that is a Pre-k to sixth grade school.  For 102 years Holy Rosary School has been a vibrant presence in this town.  The area is experiencing a great deal of growth bringing in many new Catholics, principally through the influence of The Idaho National Laboratory.  The school is an extension and an apostolate of the parish and we are looking for a principal with firm faith and solid school administration ability.


We are seeking for a practicing Catholic person who loves the Church and will lead the renewal of Catholic principles.  Our ideal candidate sees Catholic education as an integration of solid teaching practices animated by the Church’s mission of making disciples.  The principal will lead the faculty and staff to provide a school that is open to all children in our community who wish an excellent education in a small school within a caring community.


The principal will be an educational leader of the school in its mission to educate the students.  The principal will provide an environment that nurtures their minds, bodies and souls so that they might be formed in virtue and achieve their highest academic and creative potential.


The principal will be a spiritual leader, integral to this is the importance of Sunday Mass and living and respecting the teachings of the Catholic religion.  This includes respect of the Church’s teaching on marriage and family life, promoting the corporal and spiritual works of mercy and the respect of the right to life in all its stages.


The principal will be a professional person, a manager attending to the optimal use of the school’s resources including management of personnel, the physical plant and attending to the school’s financial goods and needs.


The new principal will find a school that is solid in its foundation while being in a time of renewal.  The faculty is talented, mostly new and open to being led.  The principal will have the opportunity to shape this young faculty in the faith and values of the Catholic religion and solid pedagogy.  The principal must be capable of working closely with the pastor, clergy and staff in the work of the school.
