At Candeo, we pride ourselves in being the school that opened just as much for the teachers who would work here as we did for the students who would attend.

We actively recruit and hire among the best education has to offer. We seek motivated individuals from across the nation who love learning, have a heart for the teaching profession, and possess a strong alignment to our philosophy and purpose. Our school is known for its positive, professional, results-driven culture and our love for the classical liberal arts in K-8 education. Our no-excuses approach to education allows us to consistently produce the top results in the state of Arizona. We are a Core Knowledge School of Distinction, an honor bestowed on just 10 of 635 Core Knowledge Schools in the nation.

Our schools accept applications year-round for teaching positions, including fellowships and internships. We hire great-hearted people from both education and non-education courses of study and enthusiastically welcome those who possess specialties in the core classical liberal arts. Our professional development plan is highly specialized to prepare and sustain our teachers in a fulfilling and successful career at our schools. We offer a markedly competitive salary, along with a robust benefits and perks package that is among the best in the state. Our teachers, however, consistently remark that by far the best perk at Candeo is the learning environment we cultivate, commit to, and keep.
