Employment opportunities


Willowdale Christian School (WCS) is hiring a new Principal.

WCS is blessed with experienced and capable teaching and administrative staff (15+) who are passionate about delivering excellence in Christian education in the heart of Toronto.

The Board of Trustees governs the school and together with the Principal, provides strategic direction and leadership to WCS, all informed by a Biblical worldview and with a desire to see our students become responsible citizens who are discerning, passionate Christians.
