Rhetoric & Media Arts Teacher

St. James Academy is seeking a full-time teacher to help initiate our new Rhetoric & Media Arts program for the 2022-2023 school year. The aim of this new program will be to teach the human roots of classical rhetoric while also considering the impact of modern digital technology, all through a Catholic Worldview. Students will learn to contemplate the media they consume and learn to create media of consequence. Candidates should have a high degree of technical acumen in media, feel comfortable with project-based learning, and have a desire to build a new program. Ideal candidates will be practicing Catholics with a passion for evangelization and discipleship who are experienced secondary teachers. ​​Those interested should apply here, and send a cover letter and resume to the St. James principal, Dr. Shane Rapp, at srapp@sjakeepingfaith.org.
