Looking to transition to a teaching career? Want to utilize your strengths and experience in math and computer science to change the world? Come to Guidepost Academy! Join a middle and high school program that emphasizes history, humanism, and heroism in all things: come be part of a school that is changing the face of education. 

We are looking for a High School Math and Computer Science Teacher for the 2024-25 school year. Apply today and join our wonderful community!

Changing the world is in our DNA. Our vision is a classroom where students plumb the depths of human knowledge and aspire to the height of intellectualism—and do it all at their own self-direction. Do you believe that there is critical, life-shaping knowledge that children desperately need—but also believe that they need to be in the driver’s seat when they pursue it? Then Guidepost Academy is the place for you.

Your role is as both a content expert in mathematics and computer science and as a holistic coach supporting a small group of 10-12 students in their overall education. This means meeting with them one-on-one and in small groups, supporting their personal and academic goals, and helping them build an education that is designed for, and by, them. 

This approach takes work to learn, so you'll need to come in with that attitude. It also takes flexibility and a willingness to experiment. You will be joining a team of ambitious, creative, and inspiring educators and a fast-paced organization with opportunities for growth and development. 

Your Role:

  • Work with GPA program experts to apply and individualize the GPA math curriculum for your classroom
  • Facilitate student progression through the math coursework through regular feedback and assessment 
  • 1:1 coaching to a cohort of students where you are fully invested in all aspects of their personal, academic, and social development
  • Establishing and modeling a strong, supportive community that upholds GPA ’s core values at all times
  • Working closely with your colleagues on campus and throughout the GPA  network to continually improve the program and support our students
  • Partner with parents to ensure students are fully supported at home and at school

For new GPA guides, we provide the support, coaching, and professional development that will allow you to transition your math and computer science skills to a successful teaching career. 

We would love to talk to you if you:

  • Have a demonstrated passion for mathematics, preferably in conjunction with a BS+ advanced degree 
  • Have exceptional written and verbal communication skills
  • Are looking to co-create a vibrant, thriving, loving school community
  • Are an experienced mentor, coach, or advisor of adolescents who wants to help individual students explore their passions, overcome challenges, and surpass expectations
  • Have a deep commitment to the pursuit of truth
  • Are interested in joining a growing, evolving, and ambitious educational program

About You:

We strongly encourage and welcome people from all backgrounds to apply for this opportunity and join our unique community. We are committed to building a team that represents a variety of backgrounds, perspectives, and skills.  If you're a brand-new teacher or are changing careers, we provide the coaching and professional development you'll need to be successful! 

About Us:

Our culture is built on five core values:

  1. The Pursuit of Truth: We pursue knowledge not as an academic exercise, but to improve our judgment and actions in the world. We believe that understanding what is true matters, and we pursue deeper understanding whenever possible.
  2. The Power of Agency: We believe that human beings, using their reason, judgment, and passion, are capable of leading self-directed lives of profound meaning and worth. We seek to develop and exercise our capacity to act with purpose, integrity, and conviction in pursuit of our aspirations.
  3. The Love of Work: Purposeful work is central to a life well-lived. In choosing our work, we direct our energies intentionally toward our goals, bring structure and focus to our lives, and reshape our worlds. Through cultivating our capacity for work, as well as our appreciation of the rewards of work well done, we develop a character capable of genuine effort and great achievement.
  4. The Joy of Community: We recognize the value of deep, honest relationships, and we offer others an authentic self that makes such relationships possible. We enliven and enrich each other through our choice to share norms, practices, and expectations. In doing so, we experience the joy of belonging and develop a deep and abiding sense of love and responsibility for the communities we embrace.
  5. The Courage to Live Wholeheartedly: To fully engage with the world requires a tremendous amount of vulnerability and moral courage. In order to become our best selves, we bravely face our insecurities and have the courage to care deeply about our values.
