The primary way by which this mission is accomplished is through the Socratic discussion method of teaching combined with a focus on the great classic works of literature, history, the arts, and the sciences. The XCS Board of Directors, Administration, and Faculty agree with the teacher and author Benjamin Barber when he states that, “Well-taught students learn to suspect every claim to truth and then to redeem truth provisionally by its capacity to withstand pointed questioning.” We are seeking an enthusiastic and motivated leader who is able to maintain and further develop a team approach to implementing the vision and mission established in the school’s charter, continue fostering a strong sense of community, and emphasize a classroom culture focused on classical education.
