Agamim Classical Academy is a K-8, public charter school. In 2017-18 we are a K-6 school and will add a grade each year until we are a complete K-8 school. We train teachers to teach the classical subjects of grammar, logic, and rhetoric along with the Core Knowledge curriculum sequence for science, history, geography, spelling, literature, and the arts. Our reading program is SRA’s Direct Instruction and our math program is Saxon Math. Students study classical languages with a specialist teacher (Latin and Greek roots, Modern Hebrew), but no knowledge of these languages is required for the general studies/special education teacher positions. Classical teachers learn to teach students to think critically and wisely through exposure to challenging literature and primary source material, Socratic style questioning, and memorization techniques. Special education teachers use current brain research, proven support curricula, and appropriate adaptations to help our students thrive in a classical setting. All of our students will study and uphold our five core virtues of Fortitude, Gratitude, Joyfulness, Temperance, and Wisdom which prepare children for a life enriched with Truth, Beauty and Goodness. We are a public school that prizes the American values of Liberty and E pluribus unum, and we see developing wise, informed, articulate adult citizens active in civic life as a high purpose of classical education. Agamim Classical Academy seeks faculty who are excited to become masters in their content areas and who have strong reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills. Classical education is challenging and requires a dynamic, curious, engaging, bright, resilient, organized, and joyful teacher who loves to learn and works hard to see all students meet and exceed their potential. Candidates with experienced leadership in extracurricular activities is a plus. We strive to create a school environment that is orderly, refined, and thoughtful, and the teaching culture is formal and professional. Teachers at Agamim are required to have current Minnesota certification in their grade/subject levels.
