Calvary Day School
Position: Softball Coach
Teaching or Athletic Department opportunities available
Our mission at Calvary is to provide a Christ-centered educational experience from Infant to 12th grade through the development of the total student: spiritually, academically, socially, and physically. Luke 2:52 states: “So Jesus grew both in height and in wisdom, and he was loved by God and by all who knew him.” For the Administration and Educators at Calvary, this verse is a presentation of the guiding force behind everything we do, encompassing the four components of a truly Christian philosophy of education: physical growth, intellectual growth, spiritual growth, and social/interpersonal growth.
We are a community of learners and leaders where teaching and learning are stimulating, interesting, and Christ-centered. Students, staff, and parents are supportive of one another and work cooperatively to reach ever-higher academic, social, physical, and spiritual competencies. Differences are accepted and respected by students, staff, and parents. We follow many pathways to learning while sharing goals that unite us, a common core of knowledge, and a belief in biblical truths.
Calvary Day School is seeking Educators and Coaches to create an environment that prepares students for success through learning and athletics. We are seeking coaches who have a passion for teaching in a Christian environment and are called to develop student-athletes spiritually, academically, socially, and physically. As a spiritual leader, we look for the Coach to apply God’s word to each sport and bring depth to the student’s experience as a student-athlete.
