CAREERS AT PETRA
Thank you for your interest in being a part of the Petra Academy faculty and staff! We seek employees who love God, who love children, and who are both enthusiastic and diligent about the excellence they bring to their workplace. Petra’s faculty and staff are chosen for their passion to teach in a classical and Christian school and to inspire joy in rigorous learning. We seek educators who love God, who love children, and who are both enthusiastic and diligent about teaching. A bachelor’s degree (preferably in the subject or area of study to be taught) is required, but exceptions are considered when experience and personal scholarship compensate. Experience in classical education, as a student or teacher, is preferable but not prerequisite; however, we only hire teachers who are favorably disposed to the classical model and are willing to be active learners of classical education. All Petra employees are expected to participate in church regularly.
