About International Academy of Saint Petersburg
(IA) has been helping build bridges for Third-Culture Kids for over 20 years. The school exists to provide a quality international education in English based on a foundation of Biblical truth and a commitment to develop students spiritually, academically and culturally. We seek to give our students the tools necessary to succeed in life and become effective world leaders.
In any given year, our school has students from 10-15 different countries and is currently serving 130 kids from the U.S. (35%), Korea (35%), Japan, Sweden, Poland, Bulgaria, Germany, Taiwan, Russia, Canada, and India. We are looking for teachers and faculty members who have a heart for missions and want to use their talents to reach the world.
Our host city of St. Petersburg is full of historical and cultural treasures which provide both teachers and students with amazing opportunities for field trips and exploration. Russian language classes are provided by the school free of charge for first year teachers so they are able to thrive cross-culturally and fully appreciate all the city and country have to offer.
