Founded by scholar and teacher John A. Browning, The Browning School has been a leader in fostering the intellectual and personal growth of boys and young men since 1888. Serving 402 students in kindergarten through Grade 12, Browning strives to combine the best of a traditional prep school environment and curriculum with imaginative teaching and a strong value system – all in a single-sex setting – to inspire wonder, self-confidence, achievement, and a strong sense of brotherhood among its students.
Located in a historic, six-story brick building on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, The Browning School enrolls 112 students in the Upper School, which comprises Forms III through VI (nomenclature that is a vestige of the days when Browning was organized in two divisions). Across all grade levels, Browning offers a traditional liberal arts curriculum that aims to develop students’ critical thinking skills and to inspire a self-directed capacity for inquiry and understanding across disciplines.
Browning’s Upper School is a tight-knit community that balances freedom with clear expectations. Teachers often work with students across divisions and share a dedication to helping boys grow into young men of character.
For a position to begin in July of 2018, Browning seeks a sensitive, forward-thinking leader who is energized by the prospect of retooling the Upper School’s culture as well as its academic program. This is an excellent opportunity for a collaborative educator with outstanding communication skills who is excited by the prospect of all-boys education and inspired by the energy and intensity of working in one of the world’s great cities.
