What skills are highly valued in teachers that we hire?

Covenant’s classical and Christian philosophy of education requires teachers to be part of building our students’ academic foundation by providing instruction in the academic disciplines through the lens of a Christian worldview, while also helping students understand the foundational truths of the historic Christian faith.   

We value teachers who are able and willing to implement the best practices of classical schooling including direct instruction and deeper level questioning, while preparing engaging lessons and managing the classroom in a way that builds a community of grace.

  • Refined organizational and time-management skills, including the ability to prioritize competing demands

Job Description

Preference is always given to teachers with experience teaching in a classical school, but we are always willing to train the right candidate in classical philosophy and pedagogy, provided the candidate’s educational background, professional experience, and personal convictions resonate with our distinctive approach, they are teachable, and ready to work hard.   

In all cases, the first step toward joining Covenant’s faculty is to send a resume and cover letter to Dr. Tom Stoner, Head of School ([email protected]).
