2020-2021 ACADEMY LEADERSHIP ROLES: Assistant Headmaster, Dean, etc.

The Assistant Headmaster/Dean manages academic and instructional matters at the school, as requested by the Headmaster, and acts as an essential liaison for families, students, faculty and staff regarding student academic performance.  He or she is an experienced liberal arts instructor and leader with an extensive knowledge of providing a Great Books core curriculum to children and/or teenagers. He/she reports directly to the Headmaster, and also coordinates with relevant Great Hearts Central Office Staff regarding academic and instructional matters.


Great Hearts hires faculty, administrators, and Central Office staff on a rolling basis. The Great Hearts recruitment/hiring committee (led by Kiann Robinson Mapes, Vice President of Faculty Talent) reviews all applications, then ranks and passes qualified applications on to the Heads of School. Please note:  Heads of School are largely autonomous in the hiring processes for their campuses.  They discern for themselves the candidates of interest, and contact, interview, and make offers to those candidates per their own hiring timetables.

Candidates may hear from one or more Head(s) of School and/or Great Hearts staff member(s) shortly after submitting their application, or they may not hear anything for a number of months (as some Heads of School prefer to interview candidates only after reviewing a large number of applications). In either case, it is in a candidate's best interest to submit application materials as soon as possible.

Feel free to contact our HR/Talent team  to discuss aspects of your application or the hiring process at careers@greatheartsamerica.org
