The Gateway Arch in St. Louis is a powerful symbol of the story of our country’s growth and expansion. In the beautiful suburbs of St. Louis sits Mary Institute and Country Day School (MICDS), a JK-12 school that has an equally compelling history with roots going back 160 years. After the merger of two elite schools in 1992, MICDS stands as one of the premier independent day schools in the country. Serving a diverse student body of over 1,200 students on a 100+ acre campus, the school boasts outstanding facilities, offers a multitude of programs, clubs, and sports teams, and just completed a $100M capital campaign.
As the current strategic plan (2015 – 2022) enters its final years, and as the current head of school completes his second year, one thing is clear: technology will be essential for MICDS. With the impending retirement of the current technology director, the school has elevated its technology leadership role to chief information officer. MICDS seeks a visionary, talented, and collegial leader to run a department of twelve. The CIO will oversee all areas of technology: infrastructure, data and web applications, support services, and instructional technology. The CIO will be asked to establish partnerships throughout the school, but will work most closely with the CFO and a new assistant head of school for teaching and learning. This position starts July 1, 2021 and reports to the head of school.
