Job Description:
Work with us at Cono — make a deeper dent

We are seeking VERSATILE couples in combined TEACHING-PARENTING capacities to work and live at Cono. Teaching skills include foreign languages: Spanish and French, english, literature, history and social studies, mathematics and other core subject areas. Talents and gifts in music, drama, arts, athletics, gardening, agriculture/farming, cabinet-making, and other sustaining life skills are also needed.

We want to employ adults who:

Like teens
Expect Great Things
Trust God
Follow Jesus
Know about loneliness
Take time
Can separate Big Deals from Little Deals
Know about cool stuff in this world
Love Life
Are Curious
Haven’t stopped learning

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 academics and relationships.

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 necessary authority – whether parental or school.

We parent children who need help through steady and joyful hands. At Cono, we teach them, too.

We are doing this with teens who need a safe, yet challenging, place to overcome hopelessness, disruptive behavior, and attachment difficulties. ...

Cono provides comprehensive medical and other employee benefits without requiring an employee contribution.

Candidates for job openings should contact Headmaster Tom Jahl and provide resumes and an engaging cover letter.
