Employer Description
The Athenian School is a distinctive independent school that prepares its students for college and for lives of meaning and purpose. Athenian encourages students to become life-long learners and infuses them with confidence, independence, personal responsibility and a sense of community. Enrollment in grades 6-12 is 536 students which includes 60 boarding students, the majority of whom are international students. Every employee 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, justice, participatory government, outdoor education, and service is essential. Cultural competence is an expectation of employment for all teaching and professional 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 School strives to attract and retain a faculty and staff of the highest caliber. We have a unique community, filled with many differing opinions, backgrounds, ideologies and experiences. What we share is a belief in Athenian’s mission. By embracing diversity in all forms — gender and gender identity, sexuality, faith, race, ethnicity, ability socio-economic status — we encourage students to take intellectual risks, to challenge their own assumptions and to learn to work collaboratively as global citizens and advocates for positive change. 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 actively seeks to create a more culturally diverse school community and as such, we encourage interest from the broadest range of backgrounds and lived experiences. Athenian’s salary and benefits are competitive and include medical, vision, and dental insurance, a retirement plan, a smoke-free environment, and daily prepared meals.
Diversity Mission Statement
Equity, inclusion and diversity are much more than social principles at Athenian; they are educational imperatives. Upholding them is at the core of Athenian’s philosophy and a necessary precursor to meeting our mission goal of graduating culturally competent, global citizens who enter the world as community builders. Therefore, Athenian counts on its students, families, faculty, staff, and board members to support this ideal and respect the diversity of our community of varied race, national and/or ethnic origin, socioeconomic class, faith, political affiliation, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression. Required course work, all-school activities, student clubs and co-curricular programs advance equity, inclusion, diversity, and social justice at Athenian. Athenian is committed to upholding and protecting the dignity and worth of all people, recognizing everyone’s shared humanity.
