The teachers of SJP II Academy will be the key to the success of the school. Initially, these teachers will be a small but energetic and fully committed staff who will be the foundation of the school and will be able to do more with less. Our hope is that we can get this hiring done sooner rather than later but will be dependent upon our enrolment numbers. We will keep you posted as we go along in this important area of school life.
Teacher Vacancy 2018-19
St. John Paul II Academy, a new CISVA, co-educational high school in South Surrey is scheduled to open its doors to its inaugural Gr. 8 class in Sept. 2018 at its temporary location – Star of the Sea Community Centre in White Rock.
We are happy to announce that we are currently looking for some dynamic team players who are inspired to work in a small Catholic community to start with as we begin to develop our culture and identity as a faith and learning community. We are looking for individuals who are committed to developing “an evangelizing community which fosters a personal relationship with Jesus in the family of the church.”
Specifically, we are looking for full-time Gr. 8 teachers who are able and willing to teach all subject areas of the Gr. 8 curriculum. Whether it be in the Science and Math stream or in the humanities and languages, the successful candidate will bring both an openness and enthusiasm to the classroom and will have a developing understanding of the re-designed new curriculum. It will be imperative that teachers applying for these teaching positions be willing to participate in the school’s extra-curricular program.
Please send your resume to the Principal, Mr. Michel DesLauriers @ firstname.lastname@example.org
Application deadline: March 9, 2018
Please note: Only applicants that have been approved by the CISVA office can be interviewed for posted positions.
“ History has long taught that without teachers to educate the young the Church struggles to survive. Evangelization through good teaching is essential if Catholic life is to flourish in the Lower Mainland in the years ahead.
I am convinced that the key to a thriving Catholic school like St. John Paul II Academy is precisely the commitment of its teachers – all the teachers, not just its Religion teachers – to being fully and authentically Catholic in who they are and in all they do. Let’s admit the facts here: it depends chiefly on the staff and teachers whether the Catholic school achieves its purpose. Far more crucial than your magnificent new facilities, the teachers are the key to any fruitfulness St. John Paul II Academy can claim in carrying out its educational apostolate.”

“Every established academic institution had a starting point and this is ours…we have great hope and dreams for this school and we are so proud to be part of it from the very beginning. What a wonderful opportunity for our children to continue their Catholic education is a close, loving community.” — Justin and Cynthia Wong
