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.
Culver Academies seeks a humanities instructor to join our professional community. The humanities department offers three years of core interdisciplinary instruction, including courses examining ancient to medieval perspectives in the ninth grade, European and modern world perspectives in the tenth grade, and American perspectives in the eleventh grade. The department also provides a wide range of elective offerings in literature, composition, and the social sciences, along with robust Honors seminar experiences and Advanced Placement options.
Humanities instructors use the natural, social, political, economic, cultural, and technological markers of a society to give students a sense of cultural and global perspectives via inquiry-based teaching and learning. Speaking persuasively, writing convincingly, and thinking critically are emphasized throughout a student’s humanities career. Since Culver is on an intensive 4x4 block schedule, instructors in the humanities department teach two eighty-five minute blocks each day with an average class size of fifteen. In addition to teaching two of the four blocks daily, instructors collaborate weekly with their peers teaching the same course. Instructors meet with colleagues and consider not only what content is covered but also what academic skills are emphasized and taught, as well as how best to teach those topics and skills. Additionally, in biweekly department meetings, instructors collaborate with colleagues teaching at other levels on a variety of department initiatives. Finally, all humanities instructors attend monthly meetings as a part of our campus-wide interdisciplinary learning community.
Culver faculty engage with students outside the classroom by service in either athletics or residential life. Additionally, Culver instructors are expected to be a regular part of students’ lives. Professional development is available for all instructors and stems from goals set by individual teachers and goals established within the humanities 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 and educational technology.

Culver Military Academy and Culver Girls Academy, together known as the Culver Academies, make up one of the leading private college preparatory boarding schools in North America. Located in Culver, Indiana, they share a beautiful 1800 acre campus on the shores of Lake Maxinkuckee in Northern Indiana.
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.
