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 470 students, including 42 boarding students, 35 of whom are international students. We ask that all applicants visit our website (www.athenian.org) and take time to read about Athenian’s history and philosophy.

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 here, filled with many differing opinions, backgrounds, ideologies and experiences. We have students from all over the globe, our families include a mom and a dad, two moms, two dads, single parents, guardians and stepparents. We have many faiths and those who are non-observant. We represent all income levels. What we share is a belief in Athenian’s mission. By embracing diversity in all forms — gender and gender identity, sexuality, faith, ethnicity, 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 is actively seeking to create a more culturally diverse school community and as such, we encourage people of color and members of the LGBTIQ community to apply.

THE ATHENIAN SCHOOL’S COMMITMENT TO EQUITY, INCLUSION AND DIVERSITY

Equity, inclusion and diversity are much more than social principles at Athenian; they are educational imperatives. Upholding these imperatives is at the core of Athenian’s philosophy and the School counts on its families to support this ideal. Athenian respects students, faculty, staff and board members of varied race, national or ethnic origin, socioeconomic class, faith, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression. Required course work and co-curricular programs advance equity, inclusion, diversity, and social justice. Speakers, affinity groups, cultural celebrations, neighborhood gatherings, and all-school activities foster compassion, spark dialogue, and further a more just world. Athenian is committed to upholding and protecting the dignity and worth of all people, recognizing everyone’s shared humanity.
