Chrysostom Academy

Job Opportunites

Classical and Orthodox

St. John Chrysostom Academy, located in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, unites classical education and Orthodox Christian formation. Students benefit from the reliable disciplines of formal education and the nurturing environment of faith. Young minds are directed toward the Good, the Beautiful, and the True and young hearts toward the Gospel and Holy Tradition to educate and form our students as complete persons.

As a school launching for the 2022-2023 academic year, we have the exciting opportunity of bringing educators together who seek to be a part of something special and work to build the school from the ground up.

Our teachers will guide students in order to fulfill their potential for spiritual, moral, intellectual, emotional, and physical growth. Teachers will work with parents and students to develop competencies and skills to function successfully in society. Teachers will provide a vigorous education to all students and fulfill the first principle of classical education, namely, to meet students where they are and build upon their current knowledge.

    Chrysostom Academy Upper School
