Middle School Language Arts – St. Leo School – Ridgway, PA


St. Leo School is seeking a highly motivated teacher to continue building our middle school (5-8) language arts program in the classical tradition. We feature small (but growing!) class sizes in a small-town, small-parish environment.



We prefer a teacher with a strong interest in the language arts, along with an commitment to and understanding of the classical tradition. Middle school certification and previous experience preferred, but we are willing to work with anyone who is a good fit for our unique community and school culture. A passion for great literature is essential.



Please contact Principal Monica Schloder at schloderm@eccss.org as soon as possible. We are accepting applications on a rolling basis.



St. Leo School is in the third year of its transition to a classical academy. We are located in beautiful Elk County, PA, in the heart of the Pennsylvania Wilds. The school has seen substantial growth over the past 5-8 years, and we are closing in on 120 students K-8. The school is part of the Elk County Catholic School System, which is a thriving K-12 system. We still have a football team and a marching band! St. Leo is a crucial element of our past and of our future. Its transition to classical has energized the faculty and the community, and we are looking for people to help us continue to thrive. Our school is affordable and open to all. We live in a deeply Catholic community with a strong middle class. Housing is affordable. Please contact us as soon as possible and we will get the ball rolling.
