Working at EIA

Thank you for your interest in employment with Edmonton Islamic Academy.

At Edmonton Islamic Academy, you are part of a family. We are an expanding school community. Working for EIA means opportunity, the opportunity to grow, personally and professionally. We are a large Pre-K to 12 school, with over 1400 students, but we have a small-school mentality: your ideas are heard and there is ample opportunity to take the lead on a project.

We are always looking for talented and creative teachers to join our team. We are dedicated to finding the perfect fit for you. For new teachers, we pair you with an experienced teacher to mentor you. We also welcome experienced teachers looking for new environments in which to use and share their knowledge. We are also looking for specialty subject teachers in Junior and Senior High, whether that's arts or sciences.

The religious environment at our school is unapologetically Islamic but extremely welcoming to people of all walks of life. Our team collectively consists of Muslims and non-Muslims who work coherently together.

Edmonton Islamic Academy is the right place for you if you are an eager, skilled, dynamic, respectful, and qualified teacher.
