At Ascent Classical Academies, teachers create their own lessons within the framework set by our content-rich curriculum, in collaboration with colleagues and in partnership with Hillsdale College's Barney Charter School Initiative. Teachers are responsible for mastering the key elements of their instruction and will exhibit dedication to the intellectual and moral betterment of their students.  Ascent Classical Academies encourages teachers to take their own moral and intellectual improvement seriously as part of a supportive and excellence-driven culture.


The Teaching Assistant/Substitute Teacher works closely with each teacher in his/her assigned grade level(s).

For substitute teaching, the successful candidate must understand and adhere to the principles of classical education, seek to develop the intellect and personal character of each student to the utmost of his or her ability, have a strong ability to convey knowledge to young people, and willingness to meet each child’s academic needs.


Qualified candidates will have a strong background in the subject matter, demonstrate high moral character and embrace the virtues of a democratic society. The successful candidate will also foster professional friendships with faculty and staff, seek collaborative relationships with parents, and mentor students in the pursuit of their own flourishing.  A teacher’s license is neither required nor preferred. Teaching Assistants/Substitute Teachers are accountable to the Headmaster.
