He/She will be a proven, effective communicator who firmly understands the diplomacy required to work with a varied constituent group. The successful candidate must appreciate the story and culture of the Malden Catholic community and be committed to working in a collaborative environment for the benefit of all our wonderful students.

In order to garner a strong number of competent applicants, we need your help! Attached is a formal position profile that we strongly encourage everyone in the Malden Catholic community to spread far and wide. Please share it with anyone you think may have an interest and be a good fit as Malden Catholic’s next Head of School. If you prefer that the search committee reach out to someone specific, please inform Dr. Patrick Slattery, Executive Director of the Xaverian Brothers Sponsored Schools, and he will personally contact any prospective candidate to assess his/her interest in applying.

The projected timeline for the search can be found in the attached profile. It is the collective hope of the Board of Trustees to finish the search process by late winter, with the new Head of School likely beginning work on July 1, 2019.
