Job Title: Humanities Teacher

Job Type: Full-Time

Department: Humanities


  • Do you love teaching bright and capable students who are eager to learn?
  • Would you enjoy teaching courses in a Classical and Christian environment, reading foundational authors uncommon to the high school level such as Homer, Dante, C.S. Lewis, Wilde, Milton and others?
  • Would you find it fulfilling to collaborate with a stellar faculty within a collegial atmosphere?
  • Would you benefit from a community of faith and learning that exudes both academic rigor and spiritual depth?

If so, The Cambridge School has a position opening that aligns with your interests. We are looking for a full-time teacher in our Humanities Department who can teach a selection of core courses (rhetoric/literature/composition, depending on expertise and experience). We seek someone who is committed to careful readings of historically situated texts and to promoting thoughtful discussions that explore age-old questions for the enrichment of the soul and the cultivation of wisdom. The ideal candidate will engage students in intentional writing assignments that showcase familiarity with texts, historical contexts, cultural movements and other rhetorical sensitivities. Ongoing research into relevant topics in order to provide the best material for student learning along with lively pedagogy and the cultivation of healthy student-faculty relationships is a must.

We are a classical Christian school that is increasingly recognized as a “gem, the school of choice,” for many San Diego families who are seeking both academic rigor and spiritual vitality. We take liberal arts education seriously, and it is our goal to grow students who are conversant in the historical roots of great ideas across subjects including literature, languages, math, science, logic, and rhetoric. We are affiliated with ACSI and ACCS and provide a competitive compensation and benefits package to eligible employees.

Successful candidates will agree wholeheartedly with our Mission and Statement of Faith and must enjoy and work well with adolescents. Additionally, they will have a deep appreciation for the history of ideas and its articulation within a Christian context, and they will have a demonstrable ability to prompt curiosity and inquiry in students. An advanced degree in a related field and at least 3 years of prior teaching experience at the secondary level are preferred but not required.

If you could see yourself in an academically robust, collegial, collaborative, and mission-driven educational environment—one that teachers consider as a vocational destination rather than stepping stone—please send a letter of interest and your résumé or curriculum vitae to
