Cristo Rey De La Salle East Bay High School

Deadline to apply: February 28, 2021

Our Mission

Located in the heart of Oakland’s historic Fruitvale district at the Saint Elizabeth Campus, Cristo Rey De La Salle East Bay High School (CRDLS) is a diverse, Lasallian Catholic learning community that educates young people of limited economic means to become men and women of faith, purpose, and service. A rigorous and personalized college preparatory curriculum integrated with a corporate work study experience prepares students to succeed in college and in life.

Our Unique Approach

Working at CRDLS is UNLIKE working in a traditional high school environment.

We are proponents of personalized learning. CRDLS leverages the Summit Learning platform to aid in the delivery of its educational program. The school is sponsored by the De La Salle Christian Brothers of the Lasallian District of San Francisco New Orleans and is a member of the Cristo Rey network.

We are committed to the principles of restorative and wholeness practices, and we integrate a unique corporate work study program in the educational experience of each student associate. Each student associate is employed five days per month by a corporate partner, local business, or community agency which, in turn, provides socio-political capital and tuition assistance.


CRDLS is seeking a Principal. The school is sponsored by the De La Salle Christian Brothers, District of San Francisco New Orleans. A member of the Cristo Rey Network, CRDLS utilizes a Corporate Work Study Program modeled after the successful programs at all 37 Cristo Rey Network schools. All students are required to complete a college preparatory curriculum and participate in the Work Study Program. Under this Corporate Work Study Program, each student is employed one day per week by a local business or community agency to provide tuition assistance and complement the school’s on-site curricular program.

Reporting directly to the President, the Principal will be a dynamic leader committed to providing high quality education to Oakland youth, especially students of limited economic means. The Principal must demonstrate a record of academic leadership, executive management, and the achievement of innovative operational and strategic goals. A visionary leader is sought, one who is rooted in the Catholic faith and who can effectively represent and articulate the school’s mission to its various constituencies.

An ideal candidate for Principal will be a practicing Catholic who has 3 or more years of demonstrated success in an administrative role in a secondary school environment. The candidate must possess and model strong leadership skills, desire collaborative team management, exhibit cultural competency, be committed to understanding and embracing the cultural backgrounds of students and families, possess both excellent written and oral communication skills, and have experience as a supervisor of personnel with budgetary responsibility. We hope to be intentional in our hiring efforts to create a team that best reflects the lived experiences and backgrounds of our student body. We seek a leader who believes in school as community, embraces diversity, and who understands the role of Principal in these specific areas: equity and inclusion, faith formation, the development of institutional culture, instructional and academic leadership as it relates to personalized learning, and co-curricular and service programs.
