Description of Panajachel Colegio Internacional

Panajachel Colegio Internacional (PCI) is seeking dedicated educators who are passionate about student learning, cultural diversity, community involvement and adventure. We are a small (70 students) non-profit school located in the Guatemalan highlands next to beautiful Lake Atitlan. The town has a population of 12,000 and the lake is surrounded by indigenous villages, each with its own character.

PCI offers a unique opportunity to be part of a school that is growing and committed to academic rigor, nurturing the entire child and empowering the indigenous population.

Our primary focus is empowering the indigenous population through a high-quality university-preparatory education. Fifty percent of our students pay reduced tuition. This has an impact on our operational budget, and thus salaries and benefits. However, you may rest assured that you will be able to cover your living expenses in Panajachel with the salary we provide. A number of teachers are able to save money as well.

Please send your resume and cover letter to director@panajachelcolegio.org.
