ESL Support and Family Outreach Coordinator

Looking for a higher calling? Romero Academies is seeking a passionate, mission-driven teacher to join an independent model at Romero Academy at Resurrection.

About Romero Academies.

Romero Academies is a Catholic school network located in Cincinnati, Ohio operated by Seton Education Partners. Romero Academies will invest in its facility, students, and staff both academically and financially via weekly coaching meetings, frequent professional development, and competitive compensation. Inspired by the words of St. Oscar Romero, our students will “aspire not to have more, but to be more,” and develop the virtue, knowledge, and academic skills necessary to thrive in a selective college preparatory high school, college, and beyond.

Romero Academies has two locations. In the Fall of 2020, we began managing Resurrection School in Price Hill as Romero Academy at Resurrection. In Fall 2023, we opened our second campus at Annunciation School in Clifton. What started as an idea has turned into a high-performing, joy-filled Catholic school, filled with scholars of diverse backgrounds and needs who began to outperform their neighborhood, city, and state peers on national assessments. We are blessed to serve hundreds of amazing scholars across our two campuses.
