Stuart Hall School for Boys is seeking a dynamic and experienced educator to teach Lower School for the 2018-2019 school year.
Stuart Hall School for Boys was founded in 1984 by William M. Gallop in response to the long-time need for a Catholic boys' school in the New Orleans area at the preschool and elementary levels. The school was named for Janet Erskine Stuart, a well-known religious of the Sacred Heart who was an English educator living at the turn of the century. Janet Erskine Stuart's writings and philosophy transcend the limits of time and represent the basis upon which the school was founded. The school is autonomous in setting its curriculum and determining its future. The school is a member of the Archdiocese of New Orleans and the Independent School Association of the Southwest.
Stuart Hall is a unique expression of Catholic education because it is totally administered and staffed by lay people. The traditions of Catholic education, such as First Friday services, Mass, chapel, the religion program, and the prayer life are meaningful expressions of the Catholic faith.
The mission of the Stuart Hall community is to live the words of Catholic educator Janet Erskine Stuart, Education is formation, not just information. The faculty and staff are dedicated to working with parents to help each child build a foundation for a life centered on a love for learning, a desire to help others, and a commitment to Gospel values.
