Head of School

Dear St. Thomas Aquinas High School Community~

As was announced earlier this year, Kevin Collins has decided to retire as principal of St. Thomas Aquinas at the conclusion of the next academic year. We are deeply grateful for Kevin's extraordinary service and dedication to our school, and we are committed to maintaining our culture of excellence while we search for a successor to begin on or about July 1, 2020.

An Interim Leadership Team has been established and has been adding a deep bench of collaborative support and resources to this process and period of transition including coordination with the St. Thomas Aquinas Advisory Board.

The official STA Head of School Position has been crafted and may be viewed by clicking here.

This job description was drafted by Carney, Sandoe & Associates after careful facilitation by Mr. Bob Regan.  Carney, Sandoe is the dominant search firm in the Catholic school space. Bob and his team have conducted more than 100 leadership searches for Catholic schools and arch/dioceses across the country, including high-performing independent schools at the PK-8 and secondary levels. They have also provided critical consulting services to Catholic schools and governing boards in transition, including adoption of new leadership models and effective new leadership profiles, conversion from advisory to fiduciary governance, and strategies for raising the profile and powerful value proposition of their Catholic mission and identity.

Bob met with the vast and varied constituents of St. Thomas Aquinas High School, including faculty, staff, administrators, clergy, school board, alumni, parents (past, present, incoming) and students. He also gathered input by nearly 500 STA affiliated/interested constituents. 

Please feel free to forward the position description to him/her and invite said candidate to also discern and consider if God is calling him/her to this wonderful school.

Thank you for your continued support and prayers as St. Thomas Aquinas High School prepares to select a new leader to carry forward the baton of academic tradition, excellence and pride.
