You enjoy working with adolescents and supporting their growth and development in a holistic, residential education environment committed to supporting the whole child.
You are excited to contribute to a culture of awareness, understanding, and respect for all individuals and groups, with the ability to communicate in a culturally responsive manner.

Who are we?
Our beautiful campus is located in western Maine on a 1500-acre campus with trails, ponds, and mountains. Rooted in Maine, we cultivate trailblazers and we are grounded in our purpose-driven approach as an independent boarding and day school serving students in grades 6 -12 and a postgraduate year. Learning is anchored in topics that are relevant -- to students and the world -- and we create space for students to drive their own learning with their own questions. Most importantly, we know real learning and belonging can only happen when all students are seen, valued, and engaged.
