5. Job Opportunity: Independent Schools Throughout the South

Teach at an Independent School

Southern Teachers still has over 900 teaching jobs available at private/independent K-12 schools around the South for the 2016-17 school year.

Independent schools can offer a wonderful teaching environment: smaller class size, 100% college-bound students, fewer discipline issues, and an emphasis on learning, rather than test preparation.

And it’s exceptionally important to understand that teacher certification is not necessarily required in independent schools. Therefore, a science major can be hired to teach science, a Spanish major to teach Spanish, etc.

You may read more about Southern Teachers and our services here. Interested candidates should apply via our website.

The U.S. Army is still seeking qualified students who are interested in a four-year scholarship to medical school. Every year, the Army selects over 400 individuals to receive a scholarship to attend the medical school of their choice and become an Army Officer. This scholarship offers full tuition, monthly stipend, and equipment/book reimbursement.

Your scholarship payback when out of training is one year of service for each year of medical school. You will also receive the opportunity to partake in clinical training at a variety of cutting edge Army medical centers, including but are not limited to Walter Reed Bethesda (The President's hospital) as well as Tripler Army Medical Center in beautiful Oahu, Hawaii.
