About Us


Join our Amazing Team

Founded in 1880, our PK – 12 co-ed day school is located in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts and enrolls 390+ students each year. With an average class size of 12, teachers personalize instruction in a student-centered, project-based, learning environment. We recruit and retain an outstanding and diverse faculty who places students at the center of each decision, who view their colleagues as essential collaborators for producing the best quality education for their students, and who are committed to their own personal growth and development. 
We celebrate our faculty as thought leaders in educational practice with a growth mindset, and we support and foster their professional development through the funding of conferences, workshops, and graduate courses. We hope you’ll browse our open positions and consider applying today.
