Most of our teens enter Cono in grades seven through ten. While students come from many backgrounds, most of our parents want our assistance in helping their child overcome some combination of difficulty with relationships, academics and learning the English language.
Many of our students have been adopted or experienced some form of dislocation and family distress. Others have made poor choices in friends and are not able to extricate themselves from those relationships. Some have not learned the benefits of submitting to necesssary authority at home or at school. International students are learning English as a second language.
We seek to be a small Christian community whose members are exceptional parents and teachers. We want Cono to be a safe place for teens, who need some time away from their current family and neighborhood, to make mistakes and realize accomplishments.
Salary and housing provided.
Candidates should contact Headmaster Tom Jahl with resume and engaging cover letter.
