Teaching Fellowship/Internship in Alaska

Saint John Orthodox Christian School in Eagle River, Alaska is offering a 10-month, residential fellowship/internship for a full-time, primary teacher. Saint John’s School has 100 students in grades Preschool through 8th grade, who come from a variety of religious backgrounds. The School is part of the campus of Saint John Cathedral and sits at the base of the Chugach Mountains, 10 miles outside of Anchorage. We are looking for an energetic teacher ready to offer direct classroom instruction, who is also ready to have an Alaskan adventure. The School will provide on-campus housing, a reliable, 4-wheel drive car, travel expenses to Alaska, and a stipend of $1,200 per month. Applicants can read our Mission Statement and learn more about our School on the Cathedral website or on the School website.
We are offering this as a “Fellowship” to someone who has teaching experience and can be a lead teacher, or as an “Internship” to someone who has a college degree or teaching experience and will work alongside another teacher. This is an exciting new venture for our School and we hope it might be an exciting adventure for you.

  • College-level training with a bachelor’s degree, or significant experience as a successful teacher.
