At Regina Pacis Academy, our educational approach is centered around enabling our students to pursue and achieve academic excellence through a classical model, while immersing them in an authentically Catholic environment in which they will be exposed to the goodness, the truth, and the beauty of God. Successful educators at our school will not only be those who can employ the classical approach well and encourage each child to achieve their full God-given potential, but who are themselves living witnesses of their Catholic faith who desire to hand down to our students the faith which they have received.

With these principles in mind, applicants are strongly encouraged to comment on the following in their letters of interest and send with their resume:
1) Your previous experience with teaching from a classical curriculum, or your knowledge, appreciation for, and understanding of the unique benefits of a classical curriculum in pursuing academic excellence
