As a Catholic High School owned and operated by the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, Bishop Alemany is a community enriched by faith that develops intellectually prepared men and women who are committed to promoting a just and peaceful world as conscientious and morally courageous leaders in service to others.
The daily activities of each member of the Alemany family are driven by our core values:
• Enlightened in Faith
• Enriched as Community
• Inspired by Excellence
• Empowered to Succeed
• Committed to Serve
The President of Bishop Alemany, Dr. William Hambleton, has initiated the search for a new Principal to begin on July 1, 2020 upon the retirement of Dr. David Chambers. The new Principal will report directly to the President and will be committed to helping young women and men become individuals of integrity and discipline who will generously contribute to their local and global communities. Strong candidates will manifest professional and personal connections to the core values of Catholic education and have a particularly strong sense of servant leadership. Additionally, the ideal candidate will be ready to enhance Bishop Alemany’s position as a leader in academic, athletic, character and spiritual formation among Catholic, private and independent schools in Southern California.
Bishop Alemany High School operates in the President/Principal Leadership Model. In this leadership structure, the Principal reports to the President and is responsible for day to day academic operations and the overall quality of the student experience. Moreover, the Principal plays a vital part in setting the tone, fulfilling the mission, holding people accountable and partnering with the President to achieve the critical goals and objectives of the school. The President of Bishop Alemany has identified the goals of establishing a practice of fiscal accountability, creating an atmosphere of transparency and building a culture of integrity. The Principal will need to embrace these objectives and partner with the President to achieve them in every venue of the Alemany community.
The next Principal should be a dynamic practicing Catholic who is collaborative and collegial yet, at the same time, persistent and determined. The next Principal will need to be a decisive leader who is eager to support a talented faculty and staff and who is simultaneously willing and able to address the conflict that can arise in a complex institution. The successful candidate will demonstrate a visible, approachable and energizing leadership style along with a penchant for innovation and an entrepreneurial spirit. Successful previous leadership experience in Catholic education is desired, as well as teaching experience on the secondary level. This position is a classic “take it to the next level” opportunity for the right leader.
