Alpine Academy is looking for caring, enthusiastic, self-motivated husband and wife teams to be the primary live-in care takers for up to eight girls ages 11-18 at our residential campus. Both husband and wife will be employed full-time by Alpine Academy. Family Teachers will provide youth with a caring environment in which to grow and learn, model and teach social skills, self-help skills, academic skills, and independent living skills. You will be responsible to foster the moral and spiritual development of youth, administer the day-to-day operations of a large family residence, and supervise and work with other professional Family Teachers in carrying out responsibilities.
Both husband and wife must be at least 21 years old to apply, and any interested couple must have been married for at least one year. Family Teachers may have their own children, and are provided with a two-bedroom apartment for their private accommodations.
Youth Population: The Teaching Family Couple will be responsible to care for up to 10 youth.

The youth are placed in care by their parents, who live all over the nation and are usually very involved in their child's treatment. The youth display behaviors consistent with major depressive disorders, oppositional defiance, developmental delays and other emotionally disruptive conditions.
