POSITION: President  

POSITION SUMMARY: The Board of Directors of Archbishop Hoban High School invites applications for the position of president. The president will possess the experience, skills and personal attributes required to lead this dynamic, faith-based school community while exemplifying the authenticity, character and ethics expected in a leader of a highly-visible and trusted Catholic high school.

Hoban is a Catholic, coeducational, college-preparatory high school sponsored by the Congregation of Holy Cross. Located in Akron, Ohio, the school was founded in 1953 and has a current enrollment of nearly 900 students. As a Holy Cross school, Hoban integrates a holistic educational approach to educating both the heart and the mind.

The ideal candidate will be a practicing Catholic who understands and promotes Catholic education and can model the distinguishing charism, values and traditions of the Congregation of Holy Cross. He/she will have a record of success as an engaging, respected leader with proven experience in fundraising and building collaborative, effective teams to advance the school’s mission and reputation of excellence.

ESSENTIAL FUNCTIONS & RESPONSIBILITIES:

  • PROMOTE AND LEAD THE SCHOOL MISSION
    The president serves as an institutional leader. He/she will be expected to lead efforts to promote the school’s mission, growth, visibility and reputation by demonstrating consistent, thoughtful leadership and personal integrity. The president must be an effective and sincere communicator and representative of the school, exemplifying strong workplace and personal ethics and moral character. Leadership qualities must foster vision, trust, openness, creativity and respect. 
  • ENSURE FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY
    Independent schools, especially those with tuition-driven budgets, understand how enrollment can dramatically influence the school’s budget.

The president will collaborate with the Board of Directors and serve as a vigilant steward and leader in propelling the school forward and upward, ensuring its long-term financial viability with demonstrated results.
