About the Position: We have an opening for two sections of Honors Biology and two sections of Honors Anatomy and Physiology for the 2020-2021 academic year. The coursework has been planned, scoped, and sequenced by one of our faculty who is going 'remote' to focus on online instruction for some students who are home-bound. This position allows flexibility to customize planning or rely on existing lesson plans. The average class size is 9, however for going back-to-school only 1/3 of our students will be on campus for the time being. This position is for the teacher to teach from school when allowed, wearing a face shield or mask, at least for now.
About our Culture: At Capstone Academy, we value teachers who are passionate about their academic discipline and personally driven by the academic achievement of their students.
Capstone teachers create a culture of joyful academic discovery in their rooms. Their aim is to ignite intellectual curiosity in their students and build their academic knowledge and confidence in preparation for four-year colleges.
Our teachers are passionate about collaborating and immersing themselves in the rich content they teach. We value teachers who truly listen to students and bring flexibility and strong compassion and communication for and with our students.
We are looking for teachers who embrace the technological changes that are occurring as we prepare for the uncertainty regarding future classroom education.
About the School: Capstone Academy offers a condensed Honors-level educational setting where students attend class 3 days a week, from 8:10-12:33 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Campus is open for study hall, AP course workshops, and tutoring on Mondays, but students and curriculum are structured to be more independent and students are required to take more initiative and ownership of their education. Our students typically have a demanding passion such as performing arts or athletics that require the flexible schedule with limited time on-campus.
About the Company: Capstone Academy is a private school (5th-12th grade) serving portions of the Greater Atlanta area. We are a relatively young school, we opened 5 years ago and have grown steadily, with an expected enrollment of 150 for the 2020-2021 school year. Over the summer of 2020 we added 2 classrooms and additional administrative workspace and are investing in expanded online and remote learning and working capability.
Currently we have 18 faculty teachers, our Head of School, and two Associate Heads of School, our Director of Admission (our Founder) and Administrative Assistants.
