Employment

Excelsior Classical Academy welcomes applicants who are interested in working in a school with a classical curriculum inspired by “The Lost Tools of Learning,” an essay by Dorothy Sayers. We are seeking employees who are enthusiastic about and dedicated to our mission. Our school uses Core Knowledge and Singapore Math, and teachers are expected to implement the curriculum with fidelity.

Our teachers must be highly qualified in their teaching areas, as demonstrated by a bachelor’s degree or higher in the area and/or passing scores on the appropriate Praxis exam. It is not essential for every teacher to be licensed*, but teachers must be willing to work toward licensure.

*At least 50% of a NC charter school’s teachers must be licensed.

Full-time, contract employees have 12-month at-will contracts from July 1 to June 30 and are paid via direct deposit on the last day of the month.

Positions with an asterisk(*) must also include a 1-2 page reflection on the article Academic Tenacity. Please put “Applicant – [position title]” in the subject line of the email.
