"Where do I look for boarding school jobs?" "How do I begin my search for a job in private schools?"
Two questions that we're asked on a regular basis by recent or soon to be college grads looking to begin a teaching career.
You'll want to consider working with one or more of the agencies dedicated to boarding school & private school placement. These agencies work with schools to match teachers and open positions. Many services contract with the school and collect their fees from the school rather than the candidates.
If you're interested in researching positions independently, we recommend visiting school web sites since a number of them list open positions. Also spend time on school association & promotional sites that maintain job boards.
Below is a list of agencies, school associations, colleges/universities with private school training programs and web services to research as you begin your search.
You can also listen to a podcast that explores finding a job in a private school or boarding school. Bill Lyons of Independent-Thinking spoke with our Boarding School Podcast about the process.
