Other Outdoor Part-Time Math Teacher
The Outdoor Academy is an accredited, residential, semester school for high achieving tenth-grade and select ninth- and eleventh-grade students. Rising from a long tradition of experiential education at Eagle’s Nest Foundation, a non-profit organization chartered in 1950, The Outdoor Academy incorporates a college preparatory curriculum with environmental education, wilderness leadership, unique arts offerings, and regional studies in a small community setting. Established in 1995, The Outdoor Academy enrolls up to 28 students from across the United States each semester to attend our school located in Pisgah Forest, North Carolina.

ACADEMIC RESPONSIBILITIES: The part-time math teacher is responsible for teaching up to two preps of high school math courses (including but not limited to Algebra I and II, Geometry, Pre-Calculus, Trigonometry, Common Core Math I, II, and III) to Outdoor Academy students. Different levels will generally be taught in separate sections. Our Math curriculum is based on that of our sending schools. Since students attend The Outdoor Academy for only one semester, it is important for our Math teachers to be aware of material covered at our sending schools.
