Lakes International Language Academy (LILA) is located in Forest Lake, Minnesota, a mid-sized suburb approximately 30 miles north of the Twin Cities. Our staff brings the world to our students every day - literally. Many of them have lived outside of the United States, residing on numerous continents around the world. Whether a teacher from another country, or an administrative assistant from the local community, you’ll find LILA is truly a unique place to belong.  

As a Chinese and Spanish immersion school, some of our positions require competency in a second language. But, not all! If you are a high school graduate, college graduate, or retiree looking to supplement your income, LILA has employment opportunities available. 

Our Human Resources team looks forward to working with you to uncover your talents and find a position you’ll love. Join our community of talented, committed, and caring educators today - YOU are welcome here!
