Greenwich Academy welcomes one- and two-year Middle School and Upper School Teaching Fellows in a program that includes housing, benefits, and financial support of graduate study.
Fellows enjoy the professional support of both academic and administrative mentors. With a modified teaching schedule, Fellows are able to take full advantage of other aspects of campus life, and many coach, serve as advisors, and support student publications or clubs. Mentors offer periodic observations, bi-weekly meetings, and professional development opportunities in a collaborative setting.
Fellows who wish to pursue graduate work during their time here are encouraged to do so, and will receive financial support from Greenwich Academy. Recent Fellows and new teachers have participated in graduate study at Middlebury’s Bread Loaf School of English, Columbia University, Bank Street Graduate School of Education and Manhattanville College.
In any given year, Greenwich Academy supports Fellows in nearly every academic discipline. As our hiring needs for 2020-21 become more clear, we will specify this posting to indicate the department(s) in which there are openings. In the meantime, we welcome all applications.
Penn’s Independent School Teaching Residency Program
Greenwich Academy is a member of a small consortium of independent schools in the University of Pennsylvania’s Day School Teaching Residency Program. Greenwich Academy Teaching Fellows who participate in this program pursue a two-year Master of Science in Education (M.S.Ed.) at Penn during their tenure.
This program, which provides an innovative curriculum taught by a combination of Penn’s Graduate School of Education faculty and senior administrators from cohort schools, is designed to attract and train some of the most promising new and aspiring teachers. The majority of our Penn Fellows’ graduate school tuition is covered by Greenwich Academy.
