Would you like to do something to change the world and enjoy going to work each day?
We believe that Christ-centered, poetic, classical education is the key to change, and We are seeking strong, capable, responsible, thoughtful, creative people who are faithful to the Catholic Church & well-educated in the liberal arts to help form the souls & minds of our students.
We offer a competitive salary for full time and part time positions.
Additional benefits to being a full-time Guide:
