Employment at Providence

We believe that a key to a successful Christian school is the quality of its faculty and staff. We seek applicants who are professionally qualified; who are dedicated to Christ, children and academic excellence; and who, by the pattern of their lives, are Christian role models (Luke 6:40).

Providence understands the great responsibility that teachers have of training the mind and soul of tomorrow. We are actively searching for teachers who are hungry, humble, and smart. Our teachers are set apart in their education and continued pursuit of the good, true, and beautiful. We train our teachers from the ground up in classical Christian education, including:

  • Subject and teacher-specific annual training at Repairing the Ruins, an international conference hosted by the Association of Classical and Christian Schools (ACCS). The ACCS also holds Providence’s membership and provides accreditation for classical Christian schools (June 16-18).
  • Trauma-informed and Equipping Minds professional development training
  • Core training in the Foundations of Classical Christian Excellence (FCCE), which prepares each teacher to obtain Level 1 Certification as a classical educator.

Full-time teachers at Providence are offered a salary, retirement benefits, tuition discounts, and ongoing professional development training.

Part-time teachers receive resources, professional development training, and an hourly pay rate or independent salary.
