Are you looking for a teaching position where there is actually time to focus on individual students? Where there is the freedom to meet individual academic goals and to mentor students as they grow socially, emotionally, and spiritually? Edgewood Ranch Academy, a private non-profit residential Christian school, is looking for the right candidates to guide our children as they grow academically. Requirements are a college degree (It does not have to be a teaching degree) and a willingness to work with struggling students.
The goal of Edgewood Children’s Ranch is to help children struggling with behavior issues created by traumatic experiences in their past find hope and walk in the fullness of the Gospel of Christ. Our residential program provides children in Central Florida with love, structure, behavior training, and a Christian education helping them to live a purposeful and transformed life.
Edgewood Children’s Ranch is a 501(c)(3) organization offering behaviorally challenged children a fresh start through a Christ-centered approach to education, behavioral training, and spiritual development. Children ages 7-17 are invited to be a part of our program regardless of race, religion, ethnic origin, or ability to pay. Students live in age and gender-appropriate homes with house parents who offer love, structure, fun, and hope. Our affiliated school features a low student-to-teacher ratio and individualized curriculum giving students an active and accountable role in their own advancement and success.
