Full-Time – Urgently Hiring


Job Description

Christian Star Academy of Mount Vernon, Ohio, a small, non-denominational, non-graded, state-chartered Christian school, seeks a full-time classroom assistant. A sampling of duties includes working with students individually or in small groups, helping to maintain a respectful and productive learning atmosphere, supervising students during lunchtime and recesses, and assisting the lead teacher in a variety of ways.

A successful candidate will have excellent health and mobility as there are several flights of stairs to traverse numerous times during each day. Previous work with children in tutoring or as a Sunday school teacher of students in kindergarten and older would be a great plus. Other requirements include strong organizational and collaborative skills, excellent written and spoken grammar, patience, working knowledge of Word, Excel, and similar programs, comfortable around technology in general, punctuality, and the ability to maintain respect while being fair and kind. Flexibility in adapting to each day’s needs as well as creativity are also essential. A love for the Lord and knowledge and understanding of biblical teachings should also be evident.

In keeping with CSA’s mission statement, the candidate’s dress must be modest. Staff members personally comply with the student dress code.

In preparing youth for life in the changing society of today, our mission at Christian Star Academy is to support the Christ-centered home as the foundation for educating the whole child as a steward accountable to God.

It is the belief of both the parents and educators at Christian Star Academy that it is our God-given directive to educate the whole child. We must promote total development and stewardship by providing opportunities and encouragement to grow as a responsible and contributing citizen.
