We are anticipating openings in the following departments; English, History and Math.
Teaching at Avon takes place whenever and wherever our faculty and staff interact
with our students as dorm parents, coaches, and mentors. With a student body made
of young men from 25 states and 26 countries, our teachers understand that there
is no “one” boy, that every student has unique promise, and that his character is as
important as his transcript. At Avon Old Farms, our academic program instills a curiosity
in learning. Dedicated faculty members encourage students to embrace the multitude of
academic offerings available.
We embrace the power of relational learning—essentially a positive partnership between
teacher and student—in our student-centered classes. We understand and support young
men along the road that leads to self-discovery, independence, and manhood. As relational
learners, our students appreciate how we collaborate in their successes and they value
our total immersion in the community.
As much as we challenge the boys inside the classroom, we support them in equal
measure with compassion, empathy, and constructive feedback for personal growth in our
community and beyond. Simply, we understand how every student best learns and what
he needs to excel and so discover fulfillment through his own unique gifts.
Our teachers forge enduring strong relationships with students because they recognize
their faculty joined the school to make a meaningful difference in their lives. We celebrate
our boys’ achievements: we touch the future by inspiring the good men of tomorrow
Ability to relate and empathize with adolescent young men.
