Mr. Knapp Student low res1


Thank you for your interest in teaching opportunities at Petra Academy! We seek educators who love God, who love children, and who are both enthusiastic and diligent about teaching. Experience in classical education, as a student or teacher, is preferable but not prerequisite. We do seek teachers who are favorably disposed to the classical model and who are willing to be active learners of classical education. Likewise, a bachelor’s degree is preferred but exceptions are considered when experience and personal scholarship compensate. All Petra employees are required to attend church regularly.
