Teaching at JH Classical Academy
Fall 2020 will mark our measured expansion to K-12 with the addition of 12th grade. A new facility is being planned that would double our capacity in 3-4 years. In anticipation of future growth, we do encourage excellent teachers seeking positions other than those currently open to begin a dialogue with us now.
At Jackson Hole Classical Academy high expectations are set for students, and teachers provide a high level of support. Similarly, we expect our teachers to embrace an ethic of personal and professional growth, and leadership equips them with nationally recognized mentors and classical training. Teachers serve as models, guides, and mentors to help students reach their potential.
The curriculum of JH Classical Academy focuses upon Western Civilization and embraces the Christian heritage that is foundational to American democracy. The Academy seeks teachers who long to participate in the renewal of education and, through it, the renewing of American culture. Our teachers challenge the mind and the heart of students, instilling within them a love for what is true and beautiful and a desire to pursue lives of virtue.
Jackson Hole, gateway to both Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park, is visually stunning and offers an unsurpassed quality of life. Weekend and summer recreation opportunities abound. The attractiveness of Jackson makes housing difficult to find, therefore we do provide affordable housing for incoming teachers.
Teaching positions include full medical, vision and dental insurance. Housing stipend. Nine weeks vacation per year. IRA matching after one year.
