About The Ecclesial Schools
The Ecclesial Schools Initiative is expanding access to extraordinary Christian education by creating schools where children enter a rich learning atmosphere and receive a classical Christian curriculum—regardless of financial means. We are looking for joyful and dedicated educators to join the faculty of our growing network of neighborhood schools planted in local churches in the greater Orlando area.
Faculty members receive paid in-service training from experienced academic leaders throughout the year, beginning with onboarding and orientation before the start of school. Our goal is to ensure that teachers are well prepared and supported as they accomplish their most important mission—providing students with rich and formative classical Christian learning.
Work-life balance is important to us. We create margins in teaching schedules and limit programming outside of school hours. We also help our teachers to invest most of their precious time in planning great lessons. This is why we offer students report cards with growth-based feedback rather than letter grades, and require students to read good books on school nights rather than assigning homework.
We also seek to create structures and activities that foster collegiality and collaboration. As part of grade-level teams that meet across campuses, teachers work on projects that matter both for their own practice and professional growth, but also for the growth of the academic mission of The Ecclesial Schools.
We want The Ecclesial Schools to be a place where children are rooted, known, and loved. We know that begins by creating a workplace—from missional work to competitive compensation—where teachers, staff, and administrators feel the same way.
We are looking for talented and dedicated grammar school classroom teachers, who love learning and love children. Grammar school teachers bring The Ecclesial School mission and vision to life each day by preparing engaging lessons and learning activities, cultivating a rich classroom atmosphere, building relationships with students and their parents, and committing to growing professionally as part of a faculty of friends.
The ideal candidate is someone who holds a BA and has 3-5 years of experience teaching in a classical school. We match the district school’s salary level for education and experience. The base starting salary for our teachers is $48,500 ($51,625 for MA) with benefits and matching retirement, professional development, and the opportunity for advancement.
As a faculty member of The Ecclesial Schools, you will enjoy:
- Being part of an initiative that is transforming access to classical Christian education.
- Missional work and a positive work environment, with a salary that follows the pay scale of local public schools.
- Access to a benefits package, including health, vision and dental, and a 401K matching retirement program.
- Teaching children without distractions like on-line grade books, homework assignments, and technology in the classroom.
- Support from dedicated and skilled school leaders and instructional coaches.
The Ecclesial Schools is located in the greater Orlando area, with multiple neighborhood campus locations across the metropolitan area. Central Florida is a young, dynamic, and growing area, with year-round opportunities for enjoying outdoor beauty by hiking, birding, kayaking, fishing or surfing, and for visiting the attractions that make Central Florida an international travel destination.
