Our school is an open-minded, welcoming community, which identifies itself with the principles of the Roman Catholic Church, but welcomes people from other creeds. We are an accredited AdvancED school. Our interest is to hire teachers who will bring to our school fresh ideas, open-minded individuals interested in exploring and expanding their best practices in challenging learning, professionally growing, and evolving educational environment.  

We are looking for teachers with robust leadership capacity, strong planning and organization abilities, willingness to change, assertive communication, and proven adaptation skills. We will assign the teacher to two to three middle school classes, and teaching assignments can include homeroom teaching. On the other hand, Santa Marta is a city that preserves the charm of the coastal towns, surrounded by beautiful beaches and landscapes framed by the stateliness of the Sierra Nevada. Any teacher who will come to our school will find a warm, family-like working environment and a community that embraces its core values embedded in its principles: to be, to know, to love, and to serve.
