Job Description St. Michael High School (SMHS), a Catholic Classical Academy in Petoskey, Michigan in the Little Traverse Bay region, is looking for a brilliant, energetic, and faith-filled educator to teach three to four combination Art History/Studio Art courses in our rigorous and inspiring Chesterton Network Fine Arts Curriculum. The position would commence August 1, 2022. The St. Michael core curriculum is dedicated to propagating the harmony of faith and reason, and features an integrated and interdisciplinary approach to learning in general, which also encompasses the fine arts.

Each grade has its separate art curriculum and meets twice a week, with one session devoted primarily to Art History, and the other on Studio applications. Classes are enrollment driven, so there is a possibility that one or more grades will be combined. The incumbent will also be asked to provide service to the entire high school, teach an introductory art course in our emerging junior high classical enrichment program, and be the faculty advisor of our extracurricular Art Club. The ability to teach a course or two in our Humanities curriculum would be an added plus. St. Michael Academy is a proud member of the Chesterton Classical School Network and NAPCIS.
