Employment

Best Workplaces 2018 logoThomas MacLaren School, located centrally in beautiful Colorado Springs, Colorado, is now accepting applications for faculty positions for the content areas listed below.

The vision of this Kindergarten-through-twelfth grade charter public school is that all human beings, and thus all students, can know truth, create beauty, and practice goodness. MacLaren emphasizes learning as a lifelong posture toward the world, a posture that is developed in the classroom through Socratic seminars and the practice of learning as doing.

The school is named after an acclaimed local architect who moved to Colorado Springs in the 1890s to take in its famously curative air and 300 annual days of sunshine; the elegant and abiding buildings that he left the city are emblematic of the kind of integrated learning that students at MacLaren will strive after as they are immersed in a classical liberal education.

Consider moving to Colorado Springs, which was named the "#2 Best Place to Live in the United States" by U.S. News and World Report (April 2018). Consider teaching in this community of learners, in which diverse faculty and students will join the great conversation from Sophocles and Thucydides, to Orwell and O’Connor, and where rigor and wonder will be equally applauded.
