The Ambrose School

Position Description


The Ambrose School, an ACCS accredited classical Christian school in Meridian, Idaho, is seeking a 10th grade rhetoric teacher for the 2024-2025 school year.  We look for teachers who inspire students to love rather than just know, who seek to know God more fully, and who desire to become part of our community of Great Books-educated faculty.  The Ambrose School offers a competitive salary, 100% tuition discount for full-time teachers, a comprehensive healthcare benefit package and a retirement plan option. We serve over 500 students (Pre-K-12) in a facility designed and built with our mission in mind.  Meridian is a suburb of Boise, one of the most desirable cities in which to live.  Ours is an outdoor-loving community, with quick access to mountain biking, camping, skiing and whitewater rafting.  We also offer outstanding cultural opportunities – the Boise Philharmonic, Idaho Opera, and Idaho Shakespeare Festival to name a few.

The ideal candidate will be well-versed in the five canons of rhetoric and the progymnasmata, and have experience overseeing and advising upper school thesis projects.  The texts used in this subject include De Inventione (Cicero), The Art of Rhetoric (Aristotle), and Classical Rhetoric for the Modern Student (Corbett and Connors). Applicants must have a B.A. or experience teaching classical rhetoric. The focus of our 10th grade rhetoric class is on the art of speaking persuasively.  All candidates must have a strong personal commitment to the lordship of Jesus Christ.  To apply, visit our website to download our application requirements and email them to [email protected].  In your cover letter, please detail both your classical experience and your faith story – how you came to know the Lord and how you are growing in your walk with Him.
