Concord Academy, an independent college preparatory school for grades 9 through 12 located in Concord, Massachusetts, anticipates a part-time (.375 FT) teaching position in its English Department beginning in the fall of 2017. Chartered in 1922, the School currently enrolls approximately 368 boarding and day students from ten countries and territories and fifteen states.
Students are engaged in a community animated by a love of learning, enriched by a diversity of backgrounds and perspectives, and guided by a covenant of common trust. Students and teachers work together as a community of learners dedicated to intellectual rigor and creative endeavor. In a caring and challenging atmosphere, students discover and develop talents as scholars, artists, musicians, and athletes and are encouraged to find their voices. The School is committed to embracing and broadening the diversity of backgrounds, perspectives, and talents of its people. Common trust challenges students to balance individual freedom with responsibility and service to a larger community. Such learning prepares students for lives as committed citizens.
The School seeks to appoint an outstanding teacher in support of a strong and well-established English program. The successful candidate will value and seek out opportunities to collaborate with colleagues, engage successfully with a diverse community, and bring a creative, innovative interest to curriculum design and experimentation. We are looking for candidates with genuine enthusiasm for working with adolescents, passion for scholarship, and commitment to professional growth. A master’s degree is preferred, but not required. Primary 2017-18 responsibilities will include teaching one year-long section in the freshman core and co-teaching an upper-level elective. Other opportunities may be available depending on the successful candidate’s interests and the School’s needs.
We actively seek applicants who reflect and support our mission-drive commitment to creating and maintaining a diverse and inclusive school community. The School provides a competitive benefits package and salary is commensurate with experience. All faculty members at Concord Academy participate fully in the life of the School; responsibilities include advising, serving on committees and/or clubs, and periodically providing an adult presence at school events. Coaching an athletic team is welcomed but not required and is remunerated separately. On-campus housing may be available, but it is limited, and faculty members are not required to live at the School.
Interested candidates are asked to send a cover letter, transcripts, and resume to:
