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.
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. If you are interested in being a TA at (HS)2, please complete the Resident/Teaching Assistant Application, and email to [email protected] with your cover letter and resume.

2020 Dates: New faculty, including all TAs, will arrive on campus Wednesday, June 17 and depart Sunday, July 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. All students depart campus on Saturday, July 26.

Application Procedures: Before completing the application, please read through the (HS)2 website https://www.crms.org/hs2/. Completed applications are reviewed and candidates are chosen until staffing is complete, although preference is given to applications received before March 1, 2020. The review of candidates will be ongoing and will take place when the completed Resident/Teaching Assistant application, resume, and cover letter are received.

Interviews and Hiring: After your application has been received, you will be contacted via email to inform you of your applicant status, and if appropriate, to set up an interview. Interviews will likely be conducted over the phone or via Skype. When deciding to accept an offer of a position, applicants should remember that, although the (HS)2 summer session is only five weeks, it is an intense, rigorous, and challenging program for both students and faculty.

If you have any questions, please contact Annie Oppenheim, program director, at [email protected].
