The purpose of this qualitative phenomenological study is to explore the skills, behaviors and lived experience of priests who are headteachers in government-funded Catholic secondary schools in Butare Catholic diocese. This study might help the bishop and diocesan policy makers in identifying the type of formation, skills and behaviors priests need to be effective headteachers in Catholic schools. To achieve the purpose of this study, I used a phenomenological methodology to collect and analyze the data. The participants in this study are priests who are headteachers in government-funded Catholic secondary schools of Butare Catholic diocese. The major goals of the study are: 1) to explore the lived leadership experience of priests who are headteachers in government-funded Catholic secondary schools, 2) to examine the skills and behaviors of priests who are headteachers, and 3) to understand the formation of priests in school leadership positions.
