Your interest in Cornerstone Christian Academy is appreciated. We invite you to fill out this application and return it to our school office. We will contact your references and contact you to arrange for a personal interview when we have a position open for which you are certified.
We realize that the key to a successful Christian School is its staff. We are seeking applicants who are professionally qualified, who love children, and who, by the pattern of their lives are Christian role models. (Luke 6:40). As you consider our school, you need to be aware that salaries are not competitive with public schools or other private, non-Christian schools. Salaries will typically start at $18,000 for new teachers to our school with a bachelor’s degree.
We look forward to receiving your application. Thank you for your interest in the ministry of our school. It is our prayer that God will fulfill His perfect will in the lives of all applicants.
*Note: If you are interested in a teaching position at CCA, we encourage you to complete our teacher application and questionnaire even if there is not currently a position posted. Sometimes places open and need to be filled quickly without much time for advertising. During such times will pull from the applications on file and contact you to see if you are still interested and if you would like to schedule an interview. Also note, that standard resumes will be accepted, but we also request that you complete our application form, which includes questions specifically about teaching in a Christian School. The answers to these questions are imperative to our Board of Directors and will be discussed during your interview.
