Faculty positions at HCA are unique: our project-based, placed-based, standards-based curriculum puts emphasis on interdisciplinary content, on cross-cutting skills, and on carefully scaffolded learning for students who approach school in a wide variety of ways. Our teaching practices are adapted from those of the Coalition of Essential Schools and Expeditionary Learning Schools. Each faculty member serves as an Advisor to a group of approximately 12 students, with primary responsibility for monitoring academic progress and maintaining contact with families. HCA puts great emphasis on Extended School Day and summer programming to ensure that students get the support they need to meet rigorous graduation standards.

Because we are a “small by design” school, we seek faculty members who are eager to wear more than one hat.

Openings for the 2017-18 school year follow. To apply, please send your resume, cover letter and three references to: employment@harpswellcoastalacademy.org.
