Employment at The Hebrew Academy
At The Hebrew Academy, talented students and teachers from diverse backgrounds learn together-- imaginatively. Teaching at a private school is demanding, but for those who are committed to the profession of teaching and to shaping the whole child, few experiences are more fulfilling. The Hebrew Academy continuously seeks to employ and retain a talented, dedicated, and diverse faculty--women and men who bring to their work a contagious enthusiasm.
Teaching at a private school is a lifestyle decision. The “life” extends from the classroom to the playing fields, to the stage, to the dining hall, and it exists in all the varied ways, both formal and informal, in which adults and adolescents interact. When one considers a teaching career at The Hebrew Academy, one is committing to the fulfilling experience of being in a private school community.
We are known for our demanding academic program. The Hebrew Academy creates new experiences for students through integrated and interdisciplinary learning in all areas of the school, incorporated leadership education, and the promise brought by citizenship in a community of learners.
Faculty and Curriculum
We have 3 educational departments:
- Pre-School – Toddler, Nursery and Pre-Kindergarten
- Elementary School – Kindergarten through 5th Grade.
- Middle School - 6th through 8th grade.
In addition to the basic secular and Judaic curriculum, we offer art, physical education, library, and computers.
Each academic year begins with a new faculty orientation program, followed by regularly scheduled meetings throughout the year. At The Hebrew Academy we try to provide support that will help our faculty be more effective professionals, mentors and role models.
The Hebrew Academy offers its faculty competitive compensation packages including salary, sick days, and tuition remission for children accepted to The Hebrew Academy.
The Hebrew Academy prohibits in all its programs discrimination against any member or group on the basis of religion, ethnic origin, race, sex, age, handicap, or any other consideration unrelated to education.
