The Association of Colorado Independent Schools accredits, supports, and promotes independent schools in Colorado in a way that respects each school's mission and fosters excellence in teaching and learning.
Each summer, the (HS)² Program at Colorado Rocky Mountain School hires teachers to lead courses in biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, and English. In addition to teaching responsibilities in the classroom, teachers are also asked to support students in Study Hall three nights per week. Additionally, some teachers serve as mentors to a Teaching Assistant. (HS)² teachers do not have any dormitory duties during the summer, however, they are asked to chaperone students on one off-campus trip and one on-campus social event. (HS)2 teachers are hired to teach one or two courses which meet for 110 minutes each per day, Monday through Friday.

Qualifications: Strong teaching candidates have significant teaching experience, a mastery of one of the (HS)² subjects, and genuinely enjoy working with high school students. Salary is commensurate with teaching experience.

2020 Dates: New faculty and TAs will arrive on campus Wednesday, June 17, and returning faculty will arrive on campus no later than Thursday, June 18. All faculty will depart July 25-26. (HS)² third-year students will arrive on campus Saturday, June 20 for a leadership seminar, and first and second-year students will arrive on Monday, June 22.

Resident/Teaching Assistants (TAs) are the backbone of the (HS)2 program because they interact with students on every level and in every setting. (HS)2 hires TAs for biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, and English. TAs assist lead teachers in the classroom five days per week, up to two hours per day, and support students in study hall three nights per week. TAs live in a dormitory room with another teaching assistant (sharing bathroom facilities with students), and are on duty in the dorm three nights and mornings per week, and three full weekends during the summer session. Responsibilities also include chaperoning students during off-campus activities and transporting students in a 14- passenger vehicle. Successful TAs have a strong academic background, a high level of stamina and compassion for others. They must genuinely enjoy working with high school students and have interest in mentoring first-generation college-bound students. In addition to room and board, (HS)2 TAs typically receive $2,500 to $3,500, depending upon their assigned responsibilities.
