Job Opportunities

U.S. History Teacher Job Opportunity – The Mountain School

We are currently accepting applications for a U.S. History Teacher to begin August 2022. We are interviewing on a rolling basis until the position is filled.

The Mountain School is a semester-long, residential academic program for high school juniors set on four hundred acres in central Vermont. Each fall and spring semester, forty-five students from across the country join our campus where they take academic classes, participate in our farm and outdoor programs, and build a diverse and interdependent community.

While the Mountain School has traditionally served a socioeconomically advantaged demographic, we have been radically redesigning our institutional practices and curriculum to cultivate an educationally just, inclusive program that is fluid and responsive. Our recruitment strategies in hiring and admissions are driven by this commitment, including offering tuition support through need-based scholarships and broadening our hiring networks. Vermont is a demographically very white state, but our BIPOC faculty and families are out here recruiting for some more community to help transform the culture.

For those PhD’s exploring alt-ac careers, teaching at a semester school is a great alternative to traditional high school teaching and university teaching – a little bit of the best from both worlds.

If you have specific questions for current BIPOC faculty about working at the school and living in Vermont or alt-ac teaching tracks for PhD grads, please contact Karim Wissa.
