WHY WORK AT CHESHIRE ACADEMY?
Put Students First.
Cheshire Academy knows that each student is an individual first and a grade second. Be a part of our student-centered program where you have the resources and the control over your classroom to reach each student where they are and take them beyond where they imagined possible.
Teach Your Passion.
Our curriculum emphasizes interdisciplinary and multi-cultural learning. We believe students should be challenged to think critically across the disciplines and imagine how knowledge might be used in our global economy. This philosophy allows for a range of exciting possibilities for your course.
A History of Inclusion.
Since 1794, Cheshire Academy has practiced inclusion for our student body and faculty appointments. One of the only schools to welcome Jewish students during the second World War, Cheshire Academy was also founded as a co-educational school 220 years ago. The Academy welcomed international students as early as the 1850’s, and boasted of a high Cuban population in the late 1900s during the industrial shipping era. Now, Cheshire Academy continues a tradition of inclusion by welcoming LGBTQ students and faculty with our student-led LGBTQ group and our participation in awareness programs like Day of Silence and Diversity-themed Community Weekend.
Learn for Life.
At Cheshire Academy, we are life-long learners. We learn from our students evey day; we read the latest journal articles in our fields; we model best practices and new practices, forming our own processes. We read together often, and share ideas in an intellectual environment.
Work to Achieve Strategic Goals.
Cheshire Academy is prepared for the way education will change in the 21st century, and we have strategic goals in place to help us grow gracefully into the changing educational landscape. Our department decisions strive to achieve the same strategic goal: provide a best-in-class, student-centered education. If this type of focused environment appeals to you, we want you to join our team!
