Information for Prospective Teachers

Golden View Classical Academy is a charter public school in Golden, Colorado, part of the Jefferson County (Jeffco) Public School District.  The School opened in the Fall of 2015 with grades K-10th, and is a full K-12 school as of the 2017-18 school year.

The Mission

The mission of Golden View Classical Academy is to train the minds and improve the hearts of young people through a classical, content-rich education in the liberal arts and sciences, with instruction in the principles of moral character and civic virtue in an orderly and disciplined environment.

Curriculum Overview

The Grammar School (Kindergarten-6th Grade) curriculum focuses on a solid language arts core, comprised of explicit phonics, handwriting, and grammar, as well as Singapore math and the content-rich Core Knowledge curriculum. The classroom is traditionally structured and teachers provide direct instruction.

The Upper School (7th-12th Grade) curriculum instruction focuses on clear and effective written and oral communication. Students read and discuss whole books, study primary sources, prove geometric theorems, and engage in deep scientific investigations. To graduate, all seniors must write a senior thesis and deliver and defend it orally in front of fellow students, members of the faculty, and the Principal.

Teacher Qualifications

Teachers are hired based upon their moral and intellectual seriousness and dedication to the craft of teaching.  All teachers must be “highly-qualified.” Certification for teachers is neither required nor preferred.

Applicants for positions in the Grammar School (Kindergarten-6th Grade) should have a broad liberal arts background. Applicants for positions in the Upper School (7th-12th Grade) should have an academic specialty  in the subject to be taught. Preference will be given to candidates with an advanced academic degree.

  • be well-organized

  • be able to communicate professionally with families

  • exhibit intellectual curiosity

  • use precise, edifying, and moderate speech
