Join The Athenian School Community

Working at The Athenian School is more than just a 9-5 job. We look for faculty and staff who will join us as community members, share our values, and align your passions with your work. We think you'll find that our high expectations lead to a rewarding work environment: talented and inspired colleagues, flexibility in your program, and motivated and talented students are what you can expect working at Athenian. We encourage you to explore our website and visit our campus to learn more about Athenian's approach to an educational community and to see if it will be a good fit for you. We hope you find that when you come to work for Athenian, you become part of the "Athenian family."

The Athenian School Community and Philosophy
Athenian employees embrace the cornerstones of Athenian's philosophy: respect; open and direct communication; honesty; fairness; responsibility; cultural competence; and dedication to our students in their intellectual and personal growth.  Active support for environmental conservation, international understanding, equity, inclusion, justice, participatory government, outdoor education, and service is essential.  

The Athenian School strives to attract and retain a faculty and staff of the highest caliber.  We have a unique community filled with many differing opinions, backgrounds, ideologies, and experiences.  We have students from all over the globe; families of all sorts; many faiths and those who are non-observant; we represent all income levels.  What we share is a belief in Athenian's mission. We are particularly interested in candidates with a proven commitment to teaching and working in a diverse, multicultural setting.  

The Athenian School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, ethnicity, religion, faith, sex, gender or gender expression, age, ability, sexual orientation, familial or marital status. We are actively seeking to create a more culturally diverse school community and as such, we encourage people of color and members of the LGBTIQ community to apply.
