Posted on February 14, 2021

St. Benedict's Prep seeks energetic, dedicated, full-time high school teachers to begin in late July.
Both positions are in the Girls Prep Division, grades 9-12.
Candidates for the English/history position should be prepared to teach literature courses at different grade levels, a freshman writing seminar focusing on foundational grammar ad writing skills, and courses in world and US history.
There are also opportunities to develop and teach electives in those departments.
Candidates for the math/science position should be prepared to teach math courses from algebra 1 through pre-calculus and core science courses such as physical science, biology, chemistry, and physics.

There are also opportunities to develop and teach electives in those departments depending on enrollment needs in the core courses.
Successful candidates teach in a manner that will help our students succeed as learners, gain necessary post-graduation skills, and grow in college readiness.
Teachers will need to identify and help students address skill gaps in their backgrounds, differentiate instruction, use technology to aid in student learning, and establish classroom routines that create a structured and productive learning environment.

The St. Benedict's community places a priority on accompanying students through their successes and their struggles, and teachers invest greatly in their students' lives.
Faculty members are also expected to participate in another facet of school life, whether as a coach or activity moderator.
We have needs in many extracurricular and co-curricular areas, especially in athletics.
St. Benedict's Prep is a 152-year-old Catholic school with a rigorous academic program.

The 850 students (co-ed K-6, co-ed 7-8, all-boys 9-12, and all-girls 9-12) and 65 faculty members work together to build a community whose members are responsible to one another for developing character and talent.
