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 all of our Latin courses, as well as perhaps a Literature course. The position would commence August 15, 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 terms of Latin, students are required to take Latin I and Latin II, but we also offer Latin III and Latin IV, and are contemplating offering an elective Introductory Greek course. In the broader humanities realm, students are shepherded through the primary eras of secular and sacred history, with literature mirroring those eras, as integrated literature and history is a leading hallmark of a classical curriculum: 9th grade is focused on the classical civilizations of Greece and Rome; 10th grade on the medieval world of Christendom; 11th Grade on modern European culture; and 12th grade on America and its relations with the world. The ideal candidate will possess both teaching experience and a commitment to the Magisterium of the Catholic Church. The incumbent will also be asked to provide service to the entire high school, and perhaps teach other courses in our emerging junior high classical enrichment program. SMHS is a proud member of the Chesterton Classical School Network and the National Association of Private Catholic Independent Schools (NAPCIS).
