How to Apply

Are you searching for a new teaching opportunity? Unsure of your options?

CalWest can help you find a new job. Each year, we connect educators and administrators seeking their next opportunity to independent, private, and charter schools in California, Washington, Oregon, and other western United States.

Our partner schools offer smaller, more inclusive classrooms and a bevy of resources where educators have a chance to flex their creative muscles in ways that can profoundly impact student learning. 

Without a proper introduction, the search process can be challenging. As a CalWest candidate, if your unique skills are a strong match for any of our current openings, you will be contacted by a Recruiting Advisor to assist you through the process.
