Careers

Thank you for your interest in career opportunities at Cincinnati Classical Academy. We will open as a K-6 tuition-free school in August 2022 as an affiliate of Hillsdale College’s K-12 Education initiative. A grade level will be added each year until K-12 are served. 

Our mission is to develop the minds and nourish the hearts of our students through a content-rich classical curriculum in the liberal arts and sciences with instruction in moral character and civic virtue

Teachers - What Are We Looking For?

Classical education requires teachers who are trained in academic disciplines (literature, history, sciences, mathematics, music etc.) and not just in “education.” Naturally, classical school teachers love to spend time with children, they are kindhearted, and they know how to manage a classroom, but they should also have the ability and desire to shape the character of their students through a clear teaching of moral virtue. Our vision at Cincinnati Classical Academy is to create a faculty that is academically gifted and in full pursuit of intellectual interests because these habits tend to positively influence students who are by nature looking for intellectual and moral leaders to follow.
