We thank you for your prayerful patience and support during our search for Zion Christian Academy's next Head of School. Our search appears to be winding down, and we wanted to ensure that all stakeholders have been looped in to our process and the evolving results.

After creating a job description that is in line with our highest aspirations for our beloved school, we cast our net, advertising on LinkedIn, Indeed, ACSI, NAIS, and SAIS. We also networked tirelessly with area private schools, universities with doctoral programs in the state of Tennessee, and administrators of ACSI affiliated schools. To our delight, over 50 fabulous candidates initiated an application process, and were evaluated against a rubric customized to our search criteria.

To date, five candidates have been interviewed, with two moving forward to a second round of interviews. We commit to keeping you updated as decisions are made, and ask again for your prayerful support in this matter. Should you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to Rachel Hughes at search@zioneagles.org 

God bless you!
