The White Mountain School seeks a passionate, energetic full-time Academic Coach to work in our Learning Center. Duties begin on August 14, 2017. Founded in 1886, The White Mountain School is a co-ed college preparatory boarding school (grades 9-12) located in the beautiful White Mountains of New Hampshire. Our mission statement reads: "We are a school of inquiry and engagement. Grounded in our Episcopal heritage, we prepare and inspire students to lead lives of curiosity, courage and compassion." We believe this is an incredibly exciting time in education, and we take seriously the idea that education for the future must be about more than memorization and recall; it must be about student-driven inquiry and true engagement with our intellectual heritage.
The ideal candidate will have experience working with students in grade 9-12 with mild to moderate learning differences. Other responsibilities include those typical of a boarding school job: dormitory residence and supervision, serving as an advisor to students, and coaching two seasons (with a preference for soccer and/or basketball). A candidate must be passionate about working with students both in and out of the classroom, have a sense of humor, and fully embrace the active lifestyle of a boarding school.
