Application for Teacher Positions

Applications should be completed in full by the applicant and will be automatically submitted to The Center for Catholic Education and Formation (The Center) upon agreeing to the verification statement as the last step in the application form. This application is required by each parish school or high school that wishes to fill a teacher vacancy. A representative from The Center will contact you once your applicant file is complete, to set up a preliminary interview. Final decisions on hiring are made by the employer of the parish or school corporation as the case may be.

No individual may be hired for a teacher position without completing this process.

Before you begin, please carefully review the following information regarding the online application process for our schools. The application consists of multiple steps and will take you at least 30 ‒ 60 minutes to complete. Please note, this application can be saved once you begin. Make sure you have the following information and documents ready before you start: 
  • Applicants must have at least a bachelor’s degree with a major in the grade level or subject area for which they are applying; state certification is required. Some exceptions may apply. You will be able to upload your transcripts and resume at the end of the application. 
  • Please make sure you have the dates and names of previous employers and the names and contact information for your references.
  • The application includes two writing prompts. It is recommended that you reflect on and compose responses to the prompts (consisting of no more than 500 words each) ahead of time in a separate Word/Google document then copy and paste it into the application. The application cannot be submitted without these responses.

    The prompts are as follows:
