Description

Faith Christian School is seeking an individual with a passion for inspiring students to love what God loves through the arts.  Faith is a JK-12 school of approximately 300 students nestled in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains in Roanoke, VA.  Our school is highly committed to the arts - Music, Theatre, Art - believing they play a critical role in shaping the affections of our students.  The applicant should be eager and able to build on our current program and have a vision for what a 6th -12th music program might look like in its most robust form in the context of a Christian classical education.  It will include music history, literacy, composition, appreciation, listening skills, and a robust understanding of a Biblical rationale for the importance of music. This applicant will be asked to build on the great foundation currently being laid in our JK-5th grade music program.  Student performance will be included in the program. This position may be part- or full-time.

Our goal is that our students might agree with Plato -  Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything; and Bach - The aim and final end of all music should be none other than the glory of God and the refreshment of the soul.

Applicants should desire to become part of a community of scholars and friends who share a passion for Christian classical education.  A Bachelor's degree is required, experience preferred, and enthusiasm and joy a must.  Send cover letter and resume to Stephanie Hopkins, Associate Head of Middle and Upper School at shopkins@fcsva.com.
