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. We are looking for teachers who will build relationships with their students, hold high academic and behavioral expectations, promote a growth mindset, and make every child feel safe and welcome.

Our teachers must hold a bachelor’s degree or higher. It is not essential for every teacher to be licensed†, but teacher certification is preferred.

†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 at the end of the month.
