Alzar School teachers motivate, inspire, and educate our students both in and out of the classroom. They are passionate educators who are excited to share their knowledge of content areas, enthusiasm for the outdoors, and curiosity for cultural learning.
Alzar School is a semester school for students in 10th and 11th grades. We are a nonprofit, accredited independent school. Our students are highly motivated teenagers who want to make a difference in the world. Alzar School’s main campus is in Cascade, Idaho, but each semester includes extended cultural immersion in Chile. Faculty travel with the students to Chile, living and working there for approximately 6-7 weeks each semester. Alzar School offers students challenging and engaging instruction at Honors or AP level. Community and Experiential Advisors (CEAs) serve as outdoor instructors on either backpacking (multi-day, backcountry settings) or whitewater kayaking and/or rafting expeditions. Each semester, students and faculty spend four weeks on expedition (two in North America / Rocky Mountains, and two in Patagonia, Chile). We accomplish our mission to ‘build leaders who positively impact the world’ through the intersection of academics, outdoor adventure, and cultural immersion. As a school community, we value diverse experience, perspectives, identities, and skill sets.
Support student well-being in a residential boarding school environment. Serve as mentor, PE teacher, academic sub, and more. Our CEAs form close bonds with students and help create an inclusive and powerful community. Like teachers, CEAs also travel to Chile and lead as outdoor instructors on expeditions in Idaho and Patagonia, Chile.
We invite applicants from a variety of backgrounds to apply, and firmly believe that a diverse faculty enriches our staff community and connections with students. Some applicants may possess skills in certain areas and less experience in others, for example: academic, outdoor, residential, leadership, or cultural, among others. We look forward to the opportunity to review your application!
