St. John’s Prep is an inclusive, Catholic, Xaverian Brothers Sponsored School for young men in grades 6 through 12. Founded on the Xaverian values of compassion, humility, simplicity, trust, and zeal, we educate students to be, do and stand for good in the world. We enroll 1,500 students from more than 60 communities.
St. John’s Prep seeks a teacher of English for grades 9-12 for the 2021-2022 school year. The Department of English offers a program that “engages students in the challenge to acquire the skills necessary for successful communication: reading, thinking, analyzing and writing. Through literature, writing assignments and class discussions, we seek to introduce students to the issues and ideas that will help them to explore their own identity and the nature of the world around them” (St. John’s Prep website). A complete listing of English courses and their descriptions can be found here.
High school faculty members at St. John’s Preparatory School teach four (4) classes each semester. Prospective candidates should have the competency and passion to engage every student in a rigorous college preparatory curriculum. Candidates should also have a desire to become active and collegial members of an adult community of learners. We seek candidates who are open and willing to embrace a student-centered digital learning model that incorporates education technology tools, open education resources, and varied instructional strategies.
All members of the faculty are expected to give witness to the mission of St. John’s as an inclusive, Catholic, Xaverian Brothers Sponsored School. In addition to classroom teaching responsibilities, St. John’s encourages all members of the faculty to be involved in the life of the school beyond the classroom.
