FAITH

Vancouver Catholic Schools operates 46 schools — 40 elementary and 6 high schools. Our footprint spans the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley to provide the best of the sea-to-sky lifestyle with majestic mountains, sparkling ocean, lush greenery and serene nature. Nestled within these regions is Metro Vancouver, a bustling cosmopolitan city with rich and diverse cultural flavour. Travelling from the suburbs to downtown Vancouver is about a 40-minute commute and easily accessible via public transit. 

Teaching is a profession with opportunities to inspire and impact the lives of young people. Teaching in a Catholic school is a vocation that values the dignity of the human person and fosters opportunities for students to grow in their relationship with Jesus. 

We are a culturally diverse faith-based family. We offer more than a place of work – we provide a call to your teaching vocation where you can work and live your faith in a supportive community. 

We welcome individuals to apply to the range of employment opportunities Vancouver Catholic Schools has to offer. Please see our stepbystep application process outlined below as well as links to our current list of available opportunities posted on Make A Future, our online recruitment system.
