Catholic, Independent Elementary Schools Serving Chicago's Children Since 1876


Head of Schools Search

Sacred Heart Schools is well-positioned as a school leader within the Sacred Heart Network and the city of Chicago. On October 30, 2019, Nat Wilburn, Head of Schools, announced his plans to transition from his role on June 30, 2021. Mr. Wilburn’s passion for Sacred Heart education propelled his many accomplishments as Head of Schools. Under his leadership, Sheridan Road has experienced substantial growth, progress, and financial strength, leaving the Schools poised for a dynamic new leader committed to the mission of Sacred Heart education to assume the Head of Schools position in July 2021.

The Board of Trustees appointed a Search Committee comprised of Board members to lead the search for the next Head of Schools. Subsequent updates on the Head of Schools search will be posted here and will be sent as warranted via email to the Sacred Heart community.
