Attendee Information - Job Seeker
Are you interested in working at an international Christian school overseas? International Christian schools need qualified, passionate individuals with a variety of skill sets to minister to the children of missionaries and expatriate families.
Whether you are ready to move overseas, or you are just curious about the possibilities, this fair has something for you. You will be able to meet international recruiters from all corners of the world, present your resume, and explore the many opportunities for serving overseas in an international school. Our schools are looking for teachers, administrators, dorm parents, residence assistants, guidance counselors, chefs, chaplains, maintenance personnel, Bible teachers, IT specialists, graphic designers, and more. If you are looking for an international position, please visit the ACSI Career Center to search open positions at our member schools worldwide.
Admission at each fair is free and there is no need to register. See university listings and times above. If you cannot attend one of the live fairs and have an interest in seeking a position in one of our international schools, please complete this form and we will follow up with you.

If you serve as an international school recruiter, these events will give you a unique opportunity to interact with hundreds of college-aged, first year, and experienced teachers, administrators and others from around the region in order to effectively find staff your school for the coming year.
Our job fair will include a special offer this year. Between stops at Cedarville University and Liberty University, Grand Canyon University is willing to fly you out to their campus in Phoenix AZ for a preview day (not a recruiting stop*). Contact us for the details on this unique opportunity. If you choose to skip the GCU event, we suggest that you use the time between Cedarville and Liberty University to meet with other supporting colleges or churches on the way east to Virginia. Liberty University has informed us that you are welcome to come to the college a day before our fair and have a recruiting table in their common area. You will need to arrange that in advance. (Contact the job fair coordinator for details).

Professional development (PD) opportunities are nearly universal in the experiences of U.S. educators, both in public school settings and in Christian schools. The question of which PD strategies are most effective has become more critical in recent years, as schools face increasing internal and external pressures to improve student outcomes and optimize instructional expenditures. As a result, many school leaders are seeking to identify PD opportunities with high return on investment (ROI) in terms of student learning and achievement.
In an effort to address this issue systematically, a comprehensive literature synthesis was commissioned by ACSI (Swaner 2016). The synthesis, which surveyed over 500 scholarly articles and resources over the past 20 years, asked the question, “What are best practices in PD for Christian school teachers and leaders?” While little research was found specific to Christian education, what was available corroborated much of the broader literature on PD in K–12 schools. A set of characteristics of effective PD were identified in the literature, as well as a range of practices for which there exists research on their effectiveness. The synthesis also reviewed the evidence for the importance of cultures of continuous improvement to the effectiveness of any PD efforts.
