Fryeburg Academy, Fryeburg, ME

Fryeburg Academy, a 625-student day and boarding high school in Western Maine and the Mount Washington Valley, seeks an outstanding full-time teacher who prizes hard work and professionalism and who seeks instructional training, classroom experience, and mentoring. The successful candidate will assume duties in August 2023. This position involves teaching five sections of social studies and participating in the Academy’s residential program as a dorm team member. Teaching assignments may include sociology, current events, and American studies, so a relevant content-area major or comparable experience is a must.

The Academy is therefore looking for individuals who enjoy working with high school students both in and out of the classroom and who wish to strengthen its community. Previous experience working with adolescents outside the classroom– e.g., as a tutor, coach, camp counselor– is a plus.
