University Prep is seeking top talent with a passion for creating and nurturing an excellent and innovative educational environment. We offer qualified professionals a challenging and rewarding career opportunity in a friendly and supportive work setting. We provide competitive pay and a comprehensive benefit package.

An unusually large number of teaching positions are being filled for 2016-2017. This is a direct result of our comprehensive, year-long strategic planning process that focused on promoting teacher excellence into the future. The additional positions are designed to support our faculty’s newly reduced teaching load; free up the new grade-level deans by an additional class to give them more time to carry out their new responsibilities; allow the faculty more time to work with students and for collaboration among each other; maintain a low student ratio; and respond to our enrollment demands.
