Join the CA Team
We know we’re not like other schools.
Our job is to create a learning environment that nurtures students’ unique needs and helps them achieve their personal best. We will do anything to help, guide and inspire our students. By building relationships and developing a true understanding of where they’re coming from, we can tailor the way we teach to the way they learn and give them the confidence to discover where they want to go. If this sounds like a big goal, that’s because it is. We want to set our students up for more than just amazing grades. We want to set them up for amazing lives.
We are Calgary Academy. Are you?
What we offer
Our school is the place you want to be if you are passionately committed to the future of education, if you’re a lifelong learner who believes in continually improving your practice and if you’re a collaborative team member who knows the sum is greater than the whole of the parts. If any of these traits sound familiar, we want to hear from you!
We offer a competitive compensation and benefits package, along with a little bit of CA flair.
At Calgary Academy, it’s all about the kids. Our students need your very best, so we’re passionately committed to helping you give it. Small class sizes allow you to build authentic relationships with your students, and their academic journey is mapped out each year by an individual program plan. The IPP will help guide your lesson planning, delivery and will enable you to tailor your instruction to your students’ unique learning needs.
We don’t want or expect you to become an expert in a day. That’s why all new staff members are paired with a knowledgeable mentor for their first year. This usually occurs in a team teaching environment in a shared classroom, allowing fulltime collaboration, feedback and development. Our teachers were all mentees once, and they have a genuine desire to set you up for success and share with you the CA way. You’ll see our culture, behaviours and attitudes in action, allowing you to develop your skills faster and more effectively.
We see as much potential in our staff as we do our students. We’re dedicated to empowering you with the skills and tools you need to support your students. That’s why we have extensive summer training, a full-time Instructional Coach, customized professional development throughout the year, and weekly new staff training. At CA you are always supported and encouraged to reach your full potential.
Loving where you work is just as important as loving what you teach. When you can connect the two, great things happen. Our camaraderie is founded on a shared commitment to our students. Your colleagues will welcome you into the fold, , share their resources and stand by you during challenges and successes. We succeed and grow as a team, always.
