The Upper School program combines a strong college preparatory academic curriculum with extensive and challenging programs in athletics, community service, and fine arts. Students graduating from the Upper School apply to and are accepted at selective colleges throughout the United States. Small classes, high standards, plenty of extra help, and an abiding belief that the most successful learners are the most active and involved learners, make the Upper School years the best kind of capstone to a student’s pre-collegiate education. Learning is not confined to the classroom: we have an experiential-interim program, student generated club activities, and a community service program. Learning opportunities abound, shared with friends and committed teachers.
A teaching certificate (from any state) or a Master’s degree in the subject you teach is desired.
Two years of recent experience as a teacher, tutor, or coach is also essential.
