Looking for a higher calling? Romero Academy at Resurrection is seeking passionate, mission-driven teachers to join an independent model at Resurrection School in Cincinnati.

About Romero Academy at Resurrection.

Romero Academy at Resurrection is an independent Catholic elementary school located in Cincinnati, Ohio operated by Seton Education Partners. In 2019, Seton partnered with the Archdiocese of Cincinnati and the Catholic Inner-city Schools Education Fund (CISE) to transition the existing Resurrection of Our Lord School to a new academic and governance model. In addition to investing in the students and facility, Romero Academy at Resurrection is committed to investing in its staff both academically and financially via weekly coaching meetings, frequent professional development, and competitive compensation. Inspired by the words of St. Oscar Romero, our students will “aspire not to have more, but to be more,” and develop the virtue, knowledge, and academic skills necessary to thrive in a selective college preparatory high school, college, and beyond. Teacher salaries are competitive with the local public school districts, starting at $42,000 per year.

We are looking for staff with the following beliefs and characteristics:

  • A loving respect for all people, in recognition of each person’s God-given dignity.
  • A strong belief that all children can achieve both moral and academic excellence.
  • Unassailable integrity and commitment to the school’s mission and vision.
  • An unwavering determination to be better today than they were yesterday.
  • Grit, faith, hope, love, and a sense of humor.
  • A desire to be part of a team-oriented, mission-driven school culture.
