The ideal candidate will possess a deep love for Jesus Christ and His Church, a desire to participate in the renaissance of Catholic education, and a commitment to raising up the next generation of saints and scholars.

Job Description

The study of nature, therefore, begins from the presupposition that all of reality is God’s creation, though the implications of this are easily misunderstood. The act of creation is not an alternative to natural processes; nor is the doctrine of creation an alternative to natural explanations. The act of creation is not something done to the world since prior to creation there is nothing to act upon. The doctrine of creation, therefore, does not explain how the world came to be, but what the world is. And to treat nature as creation is not to confuse science with theology or to divert attention from nature to prove God’s existence, but to behold nature differently in a way that is at once deeper and more comprehensive, but no less rigorous, than modern scientific materialism.

The science curriculum will include one section of physics, one section of biology, and one section of chemistry.
Understand and uphold the teachings of the Catholic Church at all times.
Lead students to an understanding and an appreciation of all that is good, beautiful, and true.

Be a role model of Christian love, faith, truthfulness and virtue.
Develop and implement engaging, challenging curriculum and lesson plans in line with the school’s classical education model.
