HOPAC International School Director

2 years or longer
Dar es Salaam, Tanzania

The Director guides the programs and activities of HOPAC to achieve academic excellence in Christian education, equipping the students to live out a Christ-centered life. The Director acts as the administrative and academic head of HOPAC providing leadership to all activities. The Director is responsible for all aspects of the operation of HOPAC and is directly accountable to the Board of Governors for the administration of the school.


HOPAC has a student population of about 370 and will be expanding to approximately 420 in the next two years. The student population is diverse, consisting of Missionary Children, Tanzanians, and Expatriates. About ten percent of the student population is Muslim and Hindu, creating exciting evangelistic opportunities to speak freely to “unreached people groups”.

HOPAC is currently in the middle of a multifaceted five-year visionary plan, including new construction and expanding the student body. A new library was completed in January, and construction will begin on a new Performing Arts Center in November.

HOPAC is a well respected, financially sound school with a bright and positive future ahead of it, looking for a visionary leader to propel the school to even greater achievements.
