General Information

Shorecrest Preparatory School welcomes applications from local, regional, national, and international candidates. As an independent college preparatory school committed to challenging and supporting each individual student, Shorecrest seeks people with talent, dedication, intelligence, and professionalism. The School seeks diversity in its faculty and administration, just as it does in its student body.

Shorecrest is accredited by the Florida Council of Independent Schools and Cognia. Shorecrest is a member of the National Association of Independent Schools and the College Board. State certification is not required for employment.

Initial Inquiry and Application

Written inquiries are welcome throughout the year. The most effective time to inquire for the following school year, however, is February 15 - May 15. It is during this time period that most openings become known and when the School is most active in its recruitment and hiring.
A letter with a resume is sufficient as an initial inquiry. Inquiries should be addressed as follows:
Nancy L. Spencer, Head of School
Shorecrest Preparatory School
5101 First St. NE
St. Petersburg, FL 33703

An Application for Employment may be obtained here. Information on the Application is subject to verification, and applicants are subject to background checks. Letters of recommendation, college transcripts, and other formal documentation are accepted but they are not necessary at this early stage. These will be requested by the School as needed. If you are interested in being placed on a substitute teacher list, please note this on the Application.
 
Shorecrest's receipt of your completed Application is taken as evidence of your continued interest in employment at the School.

The Application Process

Shorecrest receives a relatively large number of inquiries, and attempts to respond promptly in writing or via e-mail to all candidates. Since some positions require more extensive review, this process may take some time. If a prolonged period of time goes by without communication from the School, do not hesitate to ask about the status of your application. Applications received will be considered for one year. E-mail: employment@shorecrest.org

Salary and Benefits

Shorecrest's salary and benefits are regionally competitive. The salary for a given position is set within the School's overall salary schedule with additional consideration for advanced degrees and supplemental responsibilities.

There is also a tuition remission and other savings for faculty children.

Shorecrest is committed to the ongoing professional development of its faculty, and significant funding is available to facilitate such continuing education. Whether undertaken during the school year or the summer, continued college course work is eligible for tuition (at current USF tuition rates) and textbook reimbursement provided that the employee earns a minimum "B" in the course.
