Staff Application Process
If you are interested in applying for staff positions at Stoneybrooke, please call the school regarding availability (contact information is at the bottom of this page). You may download an application and submit it to one of our school offices. This is recommended so we have it on hand as positions become available.
Faculty Application Process
The application requirements for faculty positions at Stoneybrooke are as follows:
- Submit a teaching application available from this link... Teacher Application
- Include a handwritten explanation of his/her Christian testimony on a separate piece of paper.
- Include a copy of his/her current resume.
- Contact three individuals, including a former principal (or previous employer) and a pastor, and have them submit letters of reference. (At some point during the interview process, these individuals may be contacted over the phone by a Stoneybrooke administrator.)
- Include copies of all college/university transcripts.
Should Stoneybrooke decide to further the application process with a prospective teacher after reviewing his/her application, transcripts and references, the applicant will be contacted for an interview with an administrator. More than one interview may be required.
An observation lesson is the next step in the interview process. This may be done as a "demonstration lesson" in one of our classrooms or as an observation in the applicant's current classroom (student teaching or otherwise). The applicant will be notified if an observation is necessary.
Having completed an initial interview and an observation lesson, an interview with the superintendent will take place before final hiring. The applicant will be contacted if this interview is necessary.
