Hiring Process

Great Hearts hires faculty, administrators, and Central Office staff on a rolling basis. The Great Hearts hiring team reviews all applications, then ranks and passes qualified 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.

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). In either case, it is in a candidate's best interest to submit application materials as soon as possible.
