Sekolah Pelita Harapan

Applications Close: 17 Jul 2023

Commencement Date: 25 Jul 2023


Sekolah Pelita Harapan is a group of five international Christian schools located in the heart of Indonesia, in the city of Jakarta.  From a visionary beginning in 1993, Sekolah Pelita Harapan schools continue to develop as Indonesia’s leading Christian schools with a focus on academic excellence, personal growth, and spiritual development. 

Our vision of True Knowledge, Faith in Christ, and Godly Character defines our goals for students: that they may come to understand that all truth emanates from God the Creator and Sustainer and is to be found ultimately in a relationship with Jesus Christ His Son, and our Saviour.   

We aim to achieve this goal by focusing on Christ as the preeminent One in God’s plan of redemption in the world, believing that He calls us to engage with Him in the world’s restoration from brokenness.  We want our students to be people of influence and action in the world, well-equipped to engage positively wherever they may serve.   

We are grounded in an Evangelical, Reformed theology that seeks truth wherever it may be found and recognizes that all truth is God’s.  Using the International Baccalaureate and Cambridge programs allows us to develop mature, thoughtful students committed to lifelong learning who utilize inquiry to search out the truth.  

We are seeking a Principal who shares this vision with us, one who can propel our mission and help build upon our strong foundation and vibrant community.  The position entails significant responsibility for one of our campuses, requiring strong interpersonal skills, strategic thinking, and organization.  

The Academic Principal is responsible for working alongside the administration principal. Implements SPH’s educational philosophy and curriculum by providing a Christ and God Honoring learning environment, a curriculum infused with a Biblical perspective, and by the development of excellent social behaviors and moral standards grounded in Biblical standards. 

We offer competitive compensation and benefits, including housing, medical insurance, a retirement plan, and travel to and from Indonesia for all family members.  Interested candidates should send an application at their earliest convenience.
