About us

Chinquapin Preparatory School is a private college-preparatory school for students in grades 6-12 located 20 miles east of downtown Houston. Chinquapin graduates have a remarkable record of college completion.

Our school’s unique mission provides students with 7 years of high-quality education through small class size and intense preparation. Since 1969, Chinquapin has prepared economically and academically disadvantaged students from the greater Houston area for college. 

This is a dream teaching opportunity: Highly motivated, talented, students who want to excel and most likely be the first in their family to graduate from college. All students are on scholarship. The school is supported by a $10 million endowment and a strong philanthropic base comprised of foundations, individuals and a supportive board of trustees. The following full-time teaching positions are now open for applications and letters of interest. Because we are small, we seek versatile educators who can lead activities and coach in addition to teaching full time.

How to Apply

Please direct and questions or inquires about open positions to our School Director. To apply for a position please send a cover letter and resume to her. We are happy to accept any additional materials you would like to have considered in addition to a resume and cover letter.
