Teaching at Seven Oaks Classical School
New teachers will join a faculty that aspires to be a community of learners who prize an active intellectual life that extends beyond the material they teach. They will enjoy the ancillary benefits of the area in and around Bloomington, a 200-year-old university town. The land round about the school is full of hills and lakes and national parks and forests. At the same time, the presence of Indiana University means that you have all the cultural and academic opportunities of a large city without the traffic or expense. Bloomington also offers close proximity to other major cities. It is 1 hour from Indianapolis, 2 hours from Louisville, 3 hours from Cincinnati and Lexington, and 4 hours from Chicago.
Employees will be employed by Seven Oaks Classical School and not by the local public school district. Teachers will have the option of participating the Indiana State Teachers' Retirement Fund (TRF). Teachers may opt to participate in an alternative 403(b) plan instead. In addition, Seven Oaks offers a competitive benefits plan. Employees’ compensation packages will be individually negotiated.
Seven Oaks Classical School is an equal opportunity employer. The School hires without consideration to race, religion, creed, color, national origin, age, gender, marital status, veteran status, disability, or other legally prohibited form of discrimination.
