Welcome to the home of LEADERS Mission: Culver educates its students for leadership and responsible citizenship in society by developing and nurturing the whole individual, mind, spirit, and body, through integrated programs that emphasize the cultivation of character. Culver Academies is a private boarding school. We enroll students and employ faculty and staff from across the United States and around the world. Culver Academies seeks diverse and talented educators who value the core commitments of all Culver faculty, support the Culver mission and principles, and embrace the Culver teaching and learning model. At Culver, we are always looking to strengthen our organizational leadership by adding outstanding talent to our faculty and staff whose passion is to serve our students. Located on the shore of Lake Maxinkuckee, Culver Academies encompasses 1,800 acres of green hills and woodlands, and a historic collegiate-like campus with beautiful Gothic architecture. Our location in Culver, Indiana, offers the best of both worlds; a beautiful, serene setting with access to large cities nearby, including the home of the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana. We are also less than two hours away from Chicago and Indianapolis.
The Culver Academies is seeking a Mathematics Instructor to join our community of learners starting in the fall of 2024. The primary teaching assignment is two eighty-five-minute blocks each day, leaving mathematics instructors responsible for around 30 students at any time during the year. In addition to teaching, an instructor would be expected to (1) collaborate in our weekly gathering of a level team and biweekly department meetings, (2) participate in the department math help center weekly, (3) learn in a monthly interdisciplinary learning community, and (4) participate in our students’ experiences outside the classroom by supporting either athletics or residential life and serving as a mentor to a small group of students.
Math classrooms at Culver are technology-rich and student-centered. Because of this, the ideal candidate would have experience teaching mathematics as an inquiry-based curriculum and have an interest in incorporating technology in our 1:1 environment into the student learning experience. In addition, the ideal candidate would be comfortable guiding students in all courses, from Pre-Algebra through Calculus. All instructors at Culver embrace the constructivist Culver teaching and learning model for their students. An ideal candidate would be interested in curriculum design and review.
Professional development is available for all instructors and is born from goals set by individual teachers and goals established within the mathematics department. Opportunities include traditional off-campus workshops and conferences, graduate work, research with students or colleagues, faculty-developed curriculum projects, and regularly scheduled on-campus teacher forums for learning support, educational technology, and culture.

The Culver Mission for both The Culver Academies and the Culver Summer Schools and Camps reads:
"Culver educates its students for leadership and responsible citizenship in society by developing and nurturing the whole individual - mind, spirit, and body - through an integrated curriculum that emphasizes the cultivation of character."
Consistent with that mission of educating students for leadership and responsible citizenship in society, we believe what distinguishes Culver from other fine secondary schools is that while it offers academics, athletic, and other extracurricular opportunities second to none, Culver is the leader in delivering practical experience and instruction in leadership for all students and emphasizing high expectations for personal responsibility and integrity. We seek to teach and develop the leadership principles that apply to leaders in all walks of life.
