St. Andrew's-Sewanee School seeks candidates for the Father Flye Fellowship in Teaching, Coaching, and Residential Life. This one-year fellowship offers aspiring independent school educators experience in the classroom, on the athletic field, and in residential life.
The fellowship is named in honor of the Rev. James H. Flye, an Episcopal priest and teacher, who dedicated much of his life to the education of students at one of SAS's predecessor institutions, St. Andrew's School. Father Flye's devotion to young people and enduring mentorships with his students were immortalized in the publication of Letters of James Agee to Father Flye, which chronicled his ongoing correspondence with his former student and Pulitzer-Prize winning author, James Agee.
For the fellowship, SAS seeks aspiring independent school educators who will work tirelessly to foster those relationships that create an intentional community that studies, works, plays, and worships together.
To apply: SAS will begin to accept applications for the coming academic year on March 1. Submit a letter of interest, a résumé with references, and a statement of educational philosophy to Father Flye Fellowship, c/o Andrea Booher, email@example.com. Applications will be considered as they are submitted. The fellowship residency will begin in August.
