An Application for Employment may be obtained by writing or calling the School. 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 write or call for information 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. The benefits package includes group medical and dental insurance, life insurance, and a pension/savings program through TIAA/CREF. There is also a tuition remission 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. The School also provides generous financial support for faculty to attend conferences and workshops.
