Prescott doesn't have a Catholic High School but does have an elementary school k-8. I just sold a home to the new principle. I can get you in touch with her if you would like.

There are some private schools in the Verde Valley - one near Sedona is an international boarding school who is always looking for good teachers. It is small and on historic property and the teachers mostly live on site. It's called Southwestern Academy. My daughter attended there some years ago. It's a great place to teach.

Dear Brad,
Thank you for all your kind help. I am presently busy with the semester grades. Frankly, since I have been in my current position for 23yrs. I do not have a resume prepared. This might take some time,but I will send my resume to you to forward when it is completed. Thanks again,

If you have a resume I will make sure it gets to Sacred Heart. Also if you are interested in public education. I can send it to Keven Kapp the Superintendent of Prescott School District. I don't have close ties with the other districts so your best bet is to submit to them yourself.
you can email me at

There are several great schools in Prescott, and the surrounding communities of Prescott Valley, Chino Valley and Dewey-Humbolt. The chances of getting hired will depend on what is available in these school districts. Check out these web sites:,,, and the Humbolt Unified School District website: We also have Yavapai College and Prescott College which can be accessed via the computer. Your experience will be a great help. 23 years can only be a plus! Good luck to you and if you are looking for a home in this area, I would love to help you out!
