Ambleside Concho Valley is currently recruiting a new principal to join our team. Founded in 2003 as Ambleside School of San Angelo and reorganized in 2022, Ambleside Concho Valley (ACV) is located in a renovated historic building in downtown San Angelo, TX. This city of 118,000 was established in 1867 when the United States built Fort Concho, one of a series of new forts designed to protect the frontier. San Angelo sits at the junction of the North and South Concho Rivers. It has been given a 10-year designation as the Visual Arts Capitol of Texas signed by Governor Greg Abbott on June 14, 2021. ​


While we know San Angelo is committed to offering excellence in education, Ambleside Concho Valley is decidedly different. We are not simply a Christian school; we are a COMMUNITY. Our program offers a Christian, life-giving education following the philosophy and practice of Charlotte Mason (a British educational reformer) and is known for its rigor, with an emphasis on learning through ideas and the discipleship of virtuous Christian character. Our rich curriculum and extensive teacher training are provided by Ambleside Schools International. Students at Ambleside not only learn from great classical literature, rich history texts, science, music appreciation, art, nature study, Spanish, and math, but they also engage in life skills, such as quilting, changing tires, woodworking, gardening, and budgeting. Our goal for our students is to prepare them for their unique destiny whether it is achieved through a university degree, military service, the arts, or a trade. ​


Service, community outreach, and leadership are of high value at Ambleside, and as such, our students engage in various giving projects, a few being: working at the animal shelter, volunteering at the local soup kitchen, and assisting in nearby border communities where they serve meals to documented and undocumented immigrants, while practicing their Spanish skills. ​


Our school is for parents who seek a smaller teacher-student ratio, where all students enjoy the dynamics of a mature teacher and a beautiful and safe classroom. We at Ambleside Concho Valley join 25 Ambleside Member Schools worldwide to continue Charlotte Mason’s mission of discipling children who are not to be defined by weakness but considered unique, divinely created persons with vast, unknowable potential. ​


To succeed in this role, you should be able to make quick decisions under pressure and have a comprehensive understanding of the curriculum. Excellent communication and organizational abilities are also essential. ​


If you meet these requirements and you’re passionate about a leadership role in a Christian Liberal Arts education, we’d like to meet you. ​
