The Upper School Computer Science Department offers a diverse and exciting range of courses including introductory programming, robotics, AP Computer Science Principles, AP Computer Science A, data science, data structures and algorithmic art.  A full-time position consists of four sections of teaching and an advisory.

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.

 Requirements:

  • Four-year degree from an accredited college or university in a computer science, engineering, math or technology-related field; advanced degree preferred.

  • Maintain a current knowledge of emerging technologies in computer science, and best pedagogical practices.

Candidates should be eager to join a professional community where collaboration is valued, where rich curricular conversations are common, and where openness to growth is the norm.  Excellent interpersonal skills are required. Demonstrated intercultural competence: the ability to understand and bridge diverse perspectives, identities, and lived experiences is a must. Additionally, candidates will be expected to share in the day-to-day life of the school community, which includes organizing and running a one-week Upper School Interim, and serving as a grade-level advisor.

All CA teachers are expected to carry out the mission of CA, "Creating Curious, Kind, Courageous, and Adventurous Learners and Leaders," and to support the vision of the Upper School.

The pay range for the position is $50,000-$75,000. Colorado Academy reserves the right to pay more or less than the posted range. Any discrepancies that may exist do not relate to sex.
