We are accepting applications for substitute teachers for Great Hearts Academies.  While we most often meet all substituting needs internally (faculty substitute for each other), we like to have a pool of reviewed/screened/approved Great Hearts Academies substitutes from which to draw for short/long-term substitution needs which may arise (e.g. for maternity leave, etc.) at schools within the network.  All substitute teachers are required to have a valid, current fingerprint clearance card.


  • Our academies are bastions of academic rigor and excellence and attract students who are curious and diligent
  • Classes are run Socratically - as a teacher you are expected to be a guide as well as a participant in the search for knowledge, truth, goodness, and beauty


Great Hearts hires faculty, administrators, and Lead Office staff on a rolling basis. The Great Hearts recruitment/hiring committee reviews all applications, then ranks and passes applications on to the Heads of School. Please note:  Heads of School are largely autonomous in the hiring processes for their campuses.  They discern for themselves the candidates of interest, and contact, interview, and make offers to those candidates per their own hiring timetables. Again, the need for a substitute at any given academy may or may not arise at any given time.

Candidates may hear from one or more Head(s) of School and/or Great Hearts staff member(s) shortly after submitting their application, or they may not hear anything for a number of months (as some Heads of School prefer to interview candidates only after reviewing a large number of applications).
