Every employee in the Summer Programs is an Athenian community member, and as such, embraces the cornerstones of Athenian’s philosophy: respect; open, direct communication; honesty; fairness; responsibility; and dedication to the students in their intellectual and personal growth. Additionally, active support for environmental conservation, international understanding, equity, inclusion, and justice is essential. Cultural competence is a goal for all summer staff at Athenian. As a school that from its founding has valued the worth and integrity of each individual, we are particularly interested in candidates with a proven commitment to teaching and working in a diverse, multicultural setting. Athenian Summer Programs strives to attract and retain a staff of the highest caliber. We have a unique community here, filled with many differing opinions, backgrounds, ideologies and experiences. We have students from all over the globe; our families include a mom and a dad, two moms, two dads, single parents, guardians and stepparents. We have many faiths and those who are non-observant. We represent all income levels. What we share is a belief in Athenian’s mission. We ask that all employees take time to read about Athenian’s history and philosophy.
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. The Athenian School is 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.
This is a seasonal position. All employees are offered a daily prepared lunch. (Breakfast and dinner may also be available when residential programs are on site.) Children of summer employees are welcome to participate free of charge in summer programs for which the children are the appropriate age during the employees’ summer employment work hours. If an employee would like to enroll their child for programs beyond their work hours, he/she can do so at a 50% discounted rate. (This does not include private swim lessons or CITs) Athenian is a smoke-free environment.
