Description: Kenston Forest School seeks a highly motivated Athletic Director to join a growing school community that knows the value of a vibrant sports program in young lives. The Athletic Director must be a passionate leader and a well-organized manager who will promote an exciting vision for Kenston athletics. Kenston currently fields eighteen teams in eight interscholastic sports, with 80% of its students participating, as a member of the Virginia Commonwealth Conference (VCC) and Virginia Independent Schools Athletic Association (VISAA). It's an impressive program for a school of this size. Kenston Forest School values tradition and community. For over fifty years, the school's strong, competitive athletic program has played a vital role in developing character and leadership and in drawing the school family more closely together. Friday nights in the stands for football games, winter evenings together in the gym for basketball games, and springtime afternoons at the softball and baseball diamonds are where parents and kids share many fond memories. The Director of Athletics, as a member of the Senior Administrative Team reporting to the Head of School, is responsible for organizing and overseeing athletics program budgets, personnel, and facilities. Kenston Forest is enjoying remarkable growth. The next AD will be expected to support and sustain this momentum by establishing ambitious new program goals, creating a cohesive athletic department philosophy, hiring and developing outstanding coaches, communicating effectively with all stakeholders, and expanding sports offerings and facilities. The school seeks candidates with imagination, ambition, integrity, and strong work ethic, who want to grow as leaders while contributing to an exciting transformation at Kenston Forest School. Candidates must hold graduate degrees in education, leadership, sports management, physical education, or similar fields. They must have substantial records of success as coaches and at least three years of experience in athletic administration and leadership, ideally at independent schools. For more information, please see the full position profile, available at SouthernTeachers.com. For most thorough consideration, candidates for the Athletic Director position should submit applications to Southern Teachers Agency (available at SouthernTeachers.com) along with a current resume and a cover letter explaining their interest in and qualifications for this leadership position. Questions may be directed to Mr. Jamie Estes at Estes@SouthernTeachers.com or 434-295-9122. Please do not contact the school. Initial interviews with the consultant at Southern Teachers Agency will be ongoing. The new Athletic Director will begin work July 2017.
