  • Become part of a close-knit community where you feel fulfilled professionally and personally.
  • Build positive relationships with colleagues of all career stages that fundamentally impact you as a teacher, role model, and community member.

  • As a member of a small faculty, enjoy the flexibility and influence to shape the curriculum and engage in extracurricular activities. This empowers you to integrate your passions seamlessly into your professional journey, enriching not just your career but also the lives of your students.

  • Cultivate meaningful connections with your students—as teacher, advisor, coach, dorm parent—that go beyond the classroom and make you not just
    an educator but a mentor and role model as well.


  • Extend your influence beyond traditional teaching hours, thanks to the residential aspect of boarding school life. This 24/7 immersion in education enables you to have a more substantial impact on your students, affecting not just their academic progress but their personal development too.

  • Help earnest young adults from across the country and around the world prepare for everything from their first athletic contest and theater performance, to their first college interview or first job, and everything in between and beyond.

  • Watch your students grow as they carry your voice and values forward, develop their own, and stay in touch with you in the years and decades to come.
