Vacancies in Humanities

About Us

Le Sallay International Academy is an international middle school that follows a blended learning model combining online classes with quarterly in-person study sessions. Usually, our in-person sessions are held at Chateau Le Sallay in France.  During the pandemic, we alternated our in-person sessions between US and European locations depending on availability. 

Our mission is to provide every student with an opportunity to develop their skills and learn to the best of their ability. With individualized guidance, pioneering practices, and continuous exploration, we help students get inspired and challenge them to grow. We want students to develop a love of lifelong learning and become independent thinkers. Read more about our aims and values here.
Our Humanities curriculum aims to present a balanced view of world events and to explore a variety of ideas. To better understand our approach to teaching please read this interview with Dr. Matthew McConnell, Head of Humanities.
