New City Christian School (NCCS) has two unique leadership opportunities open to help shape our growing K-5 (with plans to be K-8) Christ-centered urban school. The school is finishing its 10th year with a committed faculty, a predominantly African-American student base and an active board of directors. We are seeking:
1) An Executive Director to lead the school’s development planning and fund-raising efforts, to budget and manage the school’s financials and to build strong relationships with the Board, NCCS’s academic and business partners and the greater Asheville donor community. This position has been filled as of April 1, 2017.
2) A Principal to establish a learning environment that maximizes student academic achievement and life-planning exposure for their future while promoting the precepts and principles of Jesus Christ and to manage, support and nurture NCCS faculty and staff. The Principal will be NCCS’s face to the Asheville community in order to drive NCCS student recruitment and admissions efforts and build strong communication and relationships with New City students and families to help realize their children’s potential.
Nestled in the majestic Blue Ridge Mountain setting of Asheville, NC, NCCS was founded in 2006 to address the persistent academic achievement gap (currently around 50%) between African-American and white students. Our hope is that small class size, curriculum tailored to our students’ areas of deficit, modeling the love of Christ, and forging strong partnerships with our students and families will enable our students to develop their full potential. We have seen God’s transforming power at work in the lives of our staff, Board, and volunteers as well as in our students. We desire to see much more of this in the years ahead.
As a Christ-centered school, we are looking for individuals who seek to love God and others in the details and decisions of each day. Our vision is to equip our students with “Knowledge, Confidence and Hope”. We want to offer an outstanding education in an environment that sinks its roots deeply into the good news of Jesus Christ, relying upon that good news to shape both hearts and minds as we all grow ever more closely into His image. We seek to have an impact in our community that brings glory to the mighty, loving, and creative God we serve.
