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.

The task of the modern educator is not to cut down jungles but to irrigate deserts. The right defence against false sentiments is to inculcate just sentiments. By starving the sensibility of our pupils we only make them easier prey to the propagandist when he comes. For famished nature will be avenged and a hard heart is no infallible protection against a soft head.
— C. S. Lewis, The Abolition of Man
