Colorado Academy Middle School 

The Middle School program combines a strong academic curriculum with the care needed to grow students through the developmentally dynamic middle school years. Teachers in the Middle School work to support students’ growth as curious, kind, courageous, and adventurous leaders and learners. Students at CA benefit from small classes, high standards, robust arts and athletic offerings, and teachers’ intentional efforts to bring joy to daily school life. Learning at CA is not confined to the classroom, as students grow through our experiential interim program, outdoor education trips, clubs, service learning, and a plethora of field trips.

Requirements
  • A Bachelor’s degree is required.
  • A credential or master’s degree is preferred.
  • Two years of recent experience as a teacher, tutor, or coach is necessary.
  • The ability to collaborate and a sense of humor are essential. 

Candidates should be eager to join a professional community where collaboration is valued and where openness to growth is the norm.  Excellent interpersonal skills are required. 

Ultimately, we are most interested in finding the best candidate for the job, and that candidate may come from a less traditional background. We would encourage all interested candidates to apply.
