Science Teacher, Chemistry & Physics - Concord Academy

Concord Academy, an independent college preparatory school for grades 9 through 12 located in Concord, Massachusetts, anticipates a full-time teaching opening in its Science Department beginning in the fall of 2019.

Founded in 1922, Concord Academy is a renowned independent high school for individuals who go on to make their mark on the world. In a caring and challenging atmosphere, students thrive in partnership with talented educators, encouraged to find their voices and discover and develop talents as scholars, artists, musicians, and athletes. With just shy of 400 boarding and day students, the CA community is vibrant, close-knit, and enlivened by a rigorous curriculum with wide-as-you-can-dream opportunities. This is a place where students love to learn, where creativity and trust are abundant natural resources, and where the history and literature of New England enrich us every day.

The school seeks to appoint an experienced chemistry & physics teacher in support of a strong and well-established science department. The successful candidate will value and seek out opportunities to collaborate with colleagues, bring a creative, innovative interest in curriculum design and experimentation, and enjoy working with adolescents and supporting them in acquiring and achieving a high level of interest and mastery in science. The new CA Labs building completed in 2016 offers additional opportunities to rethink current practices and experiment with innovative teaching.

We are in search of a science teacher with the capacity and interest to teach chemistry and physics at both the introductory and advanced levels, and the disciplinary expertise to develop rigorous and compelling semester electives. Familiarity with inquiry-based methods is important, as is an affinity towards the application of subject matter to real-world problems. Applicants should have significant coursework in a relevant subject – a master’s degree is preferred, but not required.

We actively seek applicants who reflect and support our mission-driven 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:
