Current Opportunities at ACS
Austin Classical School is a classical, Christian, collaborative school in Austin, Texas, currently serving PreKindergarten through 9th grade. Austin Classical School exists to glorify Jesus Christ by co-laboring with families to cultivate wise, virtuous, and humble students through an excellent classical, Christian education.
In our collaborative model, Grammar School students (PreK-4th) are on campus two days per week (M/W), School of Logic students (5th-8th) are on campus three days per week (M/W/Th), and School of Rhetoric students (9th-12th) will be on campus four days per week (M-Th). On the remaining weekdays, students are at
home completing assigned work independently or under the guidance of their co-teaching parents.
Entering our 9th year of operation, our team is working to solidify our School of Logic and to build out our School of Rhetoric through the 12th grade. We are currently seeking a full-time educator to anchor our Upper School Latin and Humanities program and to help build out the Upper School humanities curriculum and overall student experience. Detailed requirements for the role are below:

- Participate as faculty advisor to the House system. The ACS house system currently encompasses grades 7-9 and will be in its second year next year. The House system is at the center of social and spiritual development for Upper School students because it is one of the main places for social engagement, sports, and other competitions, spiritual development, and leadership training. Because of the House system’s young age and the importance of it in the life of students, time and attention need to be given to it to further develop and stabilize it. The faculty advisor will be heavily involved in all aspects of the House system.
- Serve as a Homeroom teacher and overall mentor to Upper School students. Working with the Dean of Students, a major responsibility will be to encourage and disciple student leaders as a teacher and mentor. We currently have a small School of Rhetoric, and the expectation will be for this person to engage as
much as possible with all of the students and to be integrally involved in the spiritual formation of students.
