The Boarding School Teaching Residency – Biology

Milton Academy, established in 1798, is an independent coeducational national boarding and day school, serving 1,000 students in grades K-12 on a 125-acre campus eight miles south of Boston.

Milton Academy seeks a teaching fellow with a concentration in biology and a commitment to working in a diverse community to begin a teaching fellowship in the Boarding School Teaching Residency program in September 2020. This position will support students in grades 9-12.

In collaboration with the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education and a consortium of eight other leading boarding schools, Milton Academy is actively developing early career educators. Set on “preparing the next generation of outstanding teachers,” the Boarding School Teaching Residency program involves prospective teachers in an innovative and comprehensive curriculum designed explicitly for a boarding school environment.

Over two years, Teaching Fellows will immerse themselves in the daily life of Milton Academy as well as program course work sessions at Penn’s Graduate School of Education and on Milton’s campus. Designated Milton Academy faculty mentors will work with teaching fellows and help them assume responsibility gradually, in teaching, advising, coaching—in helping young people discover and develop diverse talents.

The Boarding School Teaching Residency program was developed for energetic, recent college graduates excited about the opportunity to teach at a top boarding school while earning a master’s degree.
