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: 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 2) How your own active practice of the Catholic faith will influence your approach to fostering an authentically Catholic classroom and school environment for your students
