About Cristo Rey

Cristo Rey San Diego High School is the 37th school in a growing national network of Catholic high schools recognized for transforming Catholic education through a unique integration of rigorous academics, professional experience, and spiritual formation. For the 2022-23 school year, Cristo Rey San Diego will welcome its third class of approximately 100 freshmen boys and girls of limited financial means. Cristo
Rey’s innovative model calls for our students to attend class four days per week and work in a professional setting five days per month through our Corporate Work Study Program (CWSP). While some of our students will enter high school below grade-level academically, it is the collective mission of our staff to ensure that our students gain admission to—and ultimately graduate from—college. In pursuit of that goal, Cristo Rey has a longer school day and an extended academic year, and our teachers innovate, plan, reflect, and practice so that they maximize their impact in the classroom.

For full list of job responsibilities and qualifications, please see the attached application. To apply, submit all of the following in pdf format (preferably in one document, if possible) to teach@cristoreysandiego.org. Include the position in the subject line of your email (e.g, Faculty: Science).
● Resume
● Contact information for three professional references (name, position, email address, and phone number)
● Cover letter that includes responses (maximum 500 words per response) to the three following prompts:

 

1. What attracts you to the Cristo Rey mission? Why do you feel you are a match for this unique opportunity to be an instructor at Cristo Rey San Diego High School?
2. Describe your philosophy of education and how you would put it into practice at Cristo Rey San Diego.
3. Many high school students confront an urgent, double challenge: they struggle with reading comprehension, basic numeracy, and they have acquired less of the academic vocabulary and core knowledge—in science, history, civics, the arts, etc.—that are critical to their success. These two challenges are reciprocal; difficulty with reading comprehension limits students’ ability to gain new knowledge and vocabulary, and limited vocabulary and core knowledge hinder reading comprehension. As a teacher in a college-prep high school with students facing this reality, how would (or do) you address it?
