Joyful, Community-Driven K-8 in Pasadena Lands Financial Leader

Mayfield Junior School

Mayfield Junior School is a remarkably joyful community. You would notice and feel this as soon as you stepped onto the grounds of this lively and beautiful five-acre campus in Pasadena, California. You would witness students who are happy and motivated, and teachers who love teaching. Students experience a thoughtfully designed, intellectually challenging, and creative program of study that develops a love of learning and academic excellence. Mayfield expects its students to reach for their potential and encourage them to lead at a school whose motto is “Actions Not Words.” Collectively, members of the community not only embrace but live it every day at this school that was founded in 1931 by the Society of the Holy Child Jesus.

The previous director retired after a long and successful 23-year tenure. So many improvements and expansions occurred under her watch, but at the same time the next director’s plate will be full of exciting, major initiatives. The school is just beginning a ten-year capital campaign, LEARNING elevated, which will result in developing new buildings, learning spaces, and structures—along with remodeling existing ones. Silent donor solicitation is underway right now; soon a fully public fundraising phase will kick off, followed by the start of long-awaited construction. The director of finance plays an integral role in this project, but by no means has to go it alone. An outstanding team of direct reports to the director is in place across three functional units: the business office, human resources, and extended programs. Reporting to the head of school, the director serves on the leadership team and works with the board on major financial forecasting and annual budget planning.

Mayfield is thrilled to announce that Linda Rabitoy joined the school in the summer of 2022 as the next director of finance.
