We nurture great minds and good people.
We have faith that every child can master rigorous content and thrive in a caring community. And we have the joy of working with others who share that belief.
If you believe....
- That every child deserves an excellent education, no matter their background or families’ resources;
- That forming good people and fostering academic excellence go hand-in-hand;
- That you want to be part of schools where adults are always learning too,
Then consider joining our team.
Our teachers come from many backgrounds and share a faith that an excellent education, grounded in values, can transform our young people and our communities. And as educators in the Partnership, our teachers receive the curricula, professional development, and coaching that help both students and teachers thrive.
Teaching assistants and fellows also make a crucial difference in our schools—and in the process, many find a pathway to teaching that is right for them.
We welcome educators with non-traditional experiences and preparation.
“I wake up every day glad to come in.
Every day I’m figuring out: how am I going to mold lives today? What am I going to bring in new today?”

Each dynamic, curious leader in a Partnership School uses their unique gifts to bring a shared vision of academic excellence and welcoming Catholic community to life. As part of a team within their schools and throughout the network, our principals, academic deans, and operations leaders don’t lead alone; they have the support and professional development they need to advance the impact that our schools have had on striving communities for generations.
“To work with and on behalf of people I love in a community that welcomed me is something I do not take for granted. That’s why, even on the days when it is hard, being a Catholic educator truly is my dream job.”
— RACHAEL DENGLER, PRINCIPAL,
ST. THOMAS AQUINAS – CLEVELAND
