Applicants FAQ

What factors are considered before hiring?
Many criteria are reviewed prior to offering a candidate a position, including information contained in the candidate’s file, background experiences, education, reference checks, and responses received during the interview.

What kind of communication can I expect during the process?
If your qualifications meet the criteria for the position, you will be contacted by the human resources department or the building administrator/principal to schedule an interview.

Does my educational experience make me too expensive to be hired? Have I taught too many years to be hired?
No. University Academy is looking for the best match of a teaching applicant to the available opening. We hire people with many years of teaching experience, as well as first year teachers. Likewise, we hire teachers with bachelor’s degrees as well as candidates with advanced degrees. Click HERE to view starting teacher salaries.

The hiring process is ongoing. If you have been interviewed for a specific position, you will receive notification of your status when a candidate has been selected. Unsuccessful candidates who interview will be notified in writing to let them know that the position has been filled.
