Teachers at Advent are collaborative members of a learning community, who are expected to participate actively in professional development and the documentation of student learning.

The Advent School employs two teachers in every classroom, pre-Kindergarten (ECC) through Sixth Grade. Specialists teach art, library, music, physical education, science, Spanish, and yoga. The Advent School’s administrative team includes the office of Advancement, Department of Learning Services, Head of School’s office, and the Business office.

For teaching candidates it is preferred that they have a master’s degree and a minimum of two to three years experience in a school with a comparable program, but a bachelor’s degree is sufficient for application. We expect teachers to be competent at curriculum design and current in the teaching of literacy and mathematics.
