St. Paul’s Academy is a preschool through 8th grade independent school. We celebrate a love of challenging questions, free expression, and service to others. We limit class size to ten at Preschool, 15 students for grades K-5 and Middle School School core classes may be larger, depending upon subject area. Classes will rarely exceed 18, thus ensuring that our students have more opportunity to ask questions and express themselves. Our school is making a positive impact in Whatcom and Skagit counties. All candidates must actively support the school mission, vision, and core commitments

As our Academy grows, we increasingly seek teachers with:

  • – A proven record of high-impact classroom teaching experience;
  • – References confirming an ability to energize, elevate, and stretch students;
  • – Awards or other recognition from colleagues and students;
  • – Experience at regionally or internationally recognized schools;
  • – Professional leadership abilities and experience;
  • – Experience recruiting and evaluating other great teachers;
  • – A global perspective, and ideally international work experience;
  • – An outstanding academic record, with an advanced degree, strongly preferred.

If you love helping students push their boundaries — and want to help us build a school that attracts leading teachers — then we invite you to contact us. St. Paul’s Academy is an independent and open community. We warmly welcome applicants of all backgrounds and beliefs.
