Together we strive to advance Beloved Community through collaboration and cooperation.

We aggressively seek applications from candidates who will promote this commitment to hiring diverse faculty members dedicated to the fully residential model of an intentional school community. Candidates reflect a demonstrated focus on the important work of diversity, equity, and inclusion, an understanding of social-emotional learning in a developmental and relational context, and deep devotion to teaching in their area of expertise realized in a growth mindset. Faculty are eager to live among and teach young men and women from all over the world and are energized by this multifaceted work.
