Job Posting Details

Position: Program Head - Track & Field
Location Seattle Preparatory School
Description Jesuit education, also known as Ignatian education, is an approach to education inspired by the teachings and principles of St. Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits), a Catholic religious order. Jesuit education is known for its emphasis on intellectual rigor, moral and ethical development, and the holistic formation of individuals. Jesuit education is not limited to Catholic students, and our own and many more Jesuit institutions welcome students of various religious backgrounds. The principles of Jesuit education have been influential in the development of a well-rounded, values-based approach to education that extends beyond the classroom and into the broader community.
