Careers at St. Patrick's
Thank you for your interest in St. Patrick's Episcopal Day School, a destination posting for exceptional educators.
Recognizing that great schools are only as good as the people who teach and learn in them, we devote significant resources to the recruitment, competitive compensation, ongoing professional growth, and retention of talented faculty and staff. We are proud that approximately 45% of our current employees have been at St. Patrick’s for 10 or more years.
We welcome resumes from individuals interested in employment at St. Patrick's, even when no available positions are posted on our website. Our hiring policies and program support our commitment to diversity. We firmly believe that our community is strengthened by the presence of different backgrounds, voices, and viewpoints.
For teaching positions, we require a bachelor's degree in a relevant field and, except for assistant teachers in Nursery and PK, prefer candidates with a master's degree and teaching experience.
Candidates must display a genuine commitment to children, excellence in teaching, a determination to continue growing as professionals, and the depth of understanding necessary for effective participation in a diverse learning community.
All appointments are contingent upon the successful completion of a required background check.
St. Patrick’s provides funding in support of a wide range of professional development opportunities for members of the faculty and staff in addition to the Master’s Degree Program. This funding is consistent with the expectation that faculty and staff will use various means during the school year and summer to grow, enhance and broaden skills, and strengthen talents. Participation ranges from a morning or one-day workshop, to institutes or workshops of longer duration, to professional conferences locally, regionally, and nationally.
