Our application process is all completed online, following the link at the bottom of the page. First, applicants will submit the preliminary application. If that is approved, they will be invited to submit a resume and to review Dalat’s statement of faith and lifestyle statement. If those are approved, the full application process will be opened. This includes checking references, questions about the specific role, and questions about ministry.

After the completion of the online application, all of your submissions will be reviewed by our hiring team. Some applicants will be selected for an initial interview to get to know you a bit and determine whether or not you are a fit for the school as a whole. Following a successful initial interview, a follow-up interview will be scheduled with the direct supervisor for the intended role. This will focus on job-specific responsibilities. When the hiring team is close to making a decision on an applicant, a final interview will be arranged with the head of school. We prefer to do all of these interview over Skype, so that we can both see and hear the applicants during the interview process.
