Full Time Classics, Theology, History Teacher in Cascais, Portugal


Cascais, Portugal






Secondary at Kairos has its foundation in a rigorous classical education that strives to renew the minds of our students in the truth, goodness and beauty of tradition. Daily life at Kairos is a careful balance of work, prayer and play, which provides a dynamic structure for students to grow. Students are given the chance to participate in a wide range of wholesome activities such as athletics, symposiums, dramatic performances, local community service, and both cultural and liturgical celebrations. These activities are not thought of as “extra-curricular” but absolutely a part of the student formation. They provide a balance between the rigours of academic study and physical work.

“Education is not the acquisition of marketable skills, or self-improvement, culture, personal fulfilment or even knowledge—though these benefits normally occur; but, essentially, it is a call to something higher than ourselves…” — John Senior Secondary students run the Kairos farm, they are engaged in philosophy, theology and current event discussions. They have local residentials (such as the annual start of year farm residential) and international residentials (in locations such as Krakow and Rome). Kairos offers Cambridge International A-Level examinations.
