On behalf of our client, DeLaSalle High School, CohenTaylor Executive Search Services is conducting a retained executive search for its President / Head of School.
A Catholic school in the Lasallian tradition since 1900, DeLaSalle offers a rigorous educational program that challenges students to serve others and become inquiring, open-minded thinkers. The most diverse private high school in Minnesota, DeLaSalle welcomes all students who seek a values-based education. Known for its academic excellence, the school receives 400 applications annually for 200 seats; 98% of graduates matriculate to college, many to elite institutions. In the spirit of its Lasallian mission, DeLaSalle provides significant financial aid to its students.
The successful President candidate will have a proven ability to engage, inspire, and unify stakeholders. A bold and visionary leader, the candidate will bring a wealth of experience fostering excellence through individual empowerment, collaborative engagement, and compassionate service as well as a demonstrated commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusivity. The candidate ideally will have experience soliciting philanthropic gifts and expanding sources of revenues.
The President is ultimately responsible for the school’s educational excellence, Catholic identity, equitable outcomes and inclusiveness, financial viability, administrative leadership, and strategic plan implementation. The next President will inherit a well-managed, financially stable institution supported by an experienced and effective team. The Board of Trustees welcomes candidates with executive leadership experience in education, non-profit, or business management. To be considered, candidates must be Roman Catholic.
