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. We are seeking diverse talent to support our mission and enrich our learning environment. 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, serving approximately 840 students, seeks qualified candidates for a full-time World Languages and Cultures faculty position effective August 2024.
Qualified candidates will hold at least a BA in Spanish with several years of teaching experience at the secondary school level preferred. Teachers with experience teaching in a constructivist environment or have familiarity with designing proficiency-based curricula and integrated performance assessments are strongly encouraged to apply. Responsibilities related to curriculum and level leadership are a possibility for a qualified and experienced candidate.
Responsibilities include the ability to teach all levels of language and culture from introductory to Advanced Placement in a 4 x 4 intensive block schedule. Teachers in the World Languages and Cultures department teach two sections at any one time, with an average total student load of 32 during a term of Spanish classes. While Culver is not a triple-threat boarding school, all faculty and staff commit to making significant contributions to the athletic or residential life program of the school, as personal interest and institutional needs dictate.
Culver Academies places a premium on a teaching and learning culture in which faculty routinely talk about practice, observe each other in the practice of teaching, create curriculum together, and teach each other what they know about teaching and learning. The successful candidate will collaborate with the Spanish team as well as a multilingual team in order to design the student experience.

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.
