The Calgary Jewish Academy is committed to attracting energetic, dedicated and innovative teachers and staff who share our vision of making the CJA the best Jewish Day school in Canada.

We offer a dynamic, challenging and caring work environment.

Our faculty and staff are an integral part of the CJA community. Their passion for teaching or working with students, their commitment to the school, and their dedication to our students, is what sets us apart.

CJA faculty and staff immerse themselves in school life: from coaching athletic teams, sponsoring clubs, chaperoning school trips, to heading up numerous extra-curricular activities. Teachers and staff get to know our students one-on-one. Each day at the CJA is different. Each day at the CJA is rewarding.

We strongly encourage and support professional development opportunities for faculty and staff, and offer a comprehensive and competitive compensation and benefits package.
