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


At Edmonton Islamic, 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 1300 students, but we have a small-school mentality: your ideas are heard and there is ample opportunity to take the lead on a project.


Planning for the 2018-2019 school year, we are looking for teachers in many of our grade levels. We are dedicated to finding the perfect fit for you. For new teachers, we pair you with an experienced teacher and 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.


Edmonton Islamic is the right place for you if you are Muslim but also if you are not a Muslim. The religious environment at our school is unapologetically Islamic, but extremely welcoming to people of all walks of life. We have Christian staff members and well as secular staff members and we see this diversity as our strength.


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