Journey With Us

Recognized as a top school district in the state of Alabama, our system prides itself in innovation and in fostering a strong, supportive culture where students and staff thrive. At the core of our district is an exceptional community of dedicated faculty and staff devoted to providing rich and engaging learning experiences for our 20,000 students in seven school zone communities: Calera, Chelsea, Columbiana, Helena, Montevallo, Oak Mountain, and Vincent.

Shelby County Schools is one of the largest employers in Shelby County and the 10th largest employer in the Birmingham metro area. Our system is committed to supporting our teachers and staff through competitive wages, a comprehensive benefits package, and high-quality professional development experiences.

Outside of work, Shelby County is an ideal place to live. We are located 10 miles south of Birmingham, Alabama in one of the fastest growing areas in the state.  You have the option to alternate between the bustling city and restaurant scene and hiking trails and stunning views of Oak Mountain, Alabama’s largest state park. Shelby County provides rich quality of life experiences and is an excellent place to raise a family.

 We welcome your interest in joining our community for a fulfilling and lifelong career.
