ACIS accredits, supports, and advances the interests of Colorado independent schools.

CA seeks a dynamic, energetic, and creative science teacher to join a collegial department as a part-time member for the 2021-2022 academic year. This position will consist of two sections of Physics. 

The Upper School program combines a strong college preparatory academic curriculum with extensive and challenging programs in athletics, community service, and fine arts.  Students graduating from the Upper School apply to and are accepted at selective colleges throughout the United States.  Small classes, high standards, plenty of extra help, and an abiding belief that the most successful learners are the most active and involved learners, make the Upper School years the best kind of capstone to a student’s pre-collegiate education.  Learning is not confined to the classroom:  we have an experiential-interim program, student generated club activities, and a community service program.  Learning opportunities abound, shared with friends and committed teachers.

A successful candidate will:

  • have a four-year degree from an accredited college or university in Physics or a related field; advanced degree preferred.
  • have at least three years of experience teaching in an educational environment or the equivalent teacher preparation (MAT)/Internship Program

The full time equivalent pay range for the position is $50,000-$70,000, actual compensation will be determined as a percentage of this FTE base pay. Colorado Academy reserves the right to pay more or less than the posted range. Any discrepancies that may exist do not relate to sex.
