Classical Studies of Indianapolis is a private, Christian co-school. At the high school level, students come to classes twice a week and complete lessons and readings at home the other days. Teachers are expected to provide interactive and engaging classroom experiences on Monday and Wednesday and create a detailed outline of work for students to complete at home. Teachers will be trained on the Online Management System used by the school (Canvas) and utilize it to post work and interact with students. Class sizes are small and students are very engaged and adept at working at home.
At the high school level of a Classical Education, we are expecting students to take part in Socratic discussions, write complex essays and give presentations to their peers. Through biblical integration and instruction our students grow in knowledge, understanding, and wisdom.
At the Middle School level, classes meet once a week, so it is even more vital for that one day of face-to-face instruction be dynamic and engaging. Then clear direction must be given for students and parents to work the rest of the week on the assigned work.
2020-21 Open Positions
High School Literature Teacher
The English teacher will facilitate Socratic discussion based classes around classical pieces of literature and instruct in composition. In this stage of development we expect our students to engage critically in texts, integrate their faith, and write analytically. Because we are a co-school that meets twice a week, teachers are not only expected to create engaging lessons on Mondays and Wednesdays, but also create detailed outlines for readings, online discussions, projects, and written papers for students to complete at home. The ideal candidate possesses a genuine interest in engaging with high school students, a personal dedication to learning, and a love of the great books that helped form the foundation of Western civilization. Excellent oral and written command of the English language is expected as well as the ability to analyze and teach these skills.
