Priory Head of School Search FAQ's

WHEN WILL TIM MOLAK OFFICIALLY RETIRE?
Tim Molak’s official last day at Priory is June 30, 2020.  He will continue to lead Priory as Head of School until that day.  Tim has planned his retirement and given Priory’s Board of Trustees and Board of Directors ample time to conduct a comprehensive search for the next Head of School.

WHO WILL CONDUCT THE SEARCH?
The Priory Board of Trustees has formed a search committee composed of a few members of the Priory Board of Trustees and Priory community. That committee has engaged Carney Sandoe and Associates, a global search firm with a strong Catholic/Independent search practice who have extensive experience in conducting worldwide, comprehensive searches.

WILL I BE ABLE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE SEARCH?
Yes.  The whole Priory community will have the opportunity to participate in interviews and in a comprehensive online survey.

WHEN WILL THE NEW HEAD OF SCHOOL BE CHOSEN?
The goal of the Priory search committee is to hire a new HOS by the end of this school year, June 2019.

HOW CAN I STAY INFORMED DURING THE SEARCH PROCESS?
The search committee will continue to keep the entire Priory community informed with updates and information on our website during the entire search process.  Please understand that this process is not totally transparent.  Confidentiality must be maintained until the final candidates are invited to campus in late spring, 2019.
