Athens Academy is a co-educational, non-sectarian, independent college preparatory day school of approximately 925 students in grades K3-12 that offers a traditional liberal arts curriculum and innovative approaches to teaching and learning. The school’s mission is to seek “excellence with honor in the educational and personal experience of each student.” Situated on a picturesque campus of 152 acres, Athens Academy admits students from diverse social, economic, religious, and racial backgrounds–all of whom benefit from a challenging academic program, a vibrant arts program, competitive athletics, and a variety of service opportunities. Athens Academy faculty and staff members are dedicated professionals who are not only experts in their respective fields of study, but are also sensitive to the gifts and challenges of individual students.
The Middle School:
Recognizing that Middle School students are in a rapid mental, emotional, and physical growth stage of life, Athens Academy emphasizes responsibility, creativity, independent thinking, personal values, and service to others. Middle School students (grades 5-8), begin to master broader and more rigorous aspects of learning that include written expression, vocabulary, problem-solving, research, scientific investigation, and teamwork. An emphasis on critical and creative thinking runs throughout the curriculum. Opportunities for public speaking, performing, publication, and athletic competition complement the challenging academic program.
Athens Academy seeks a dynamic, creative, and versatile Middle School drama teacher, beginning in August 2022. Essential characteristics include love of children, energy, optimism, flexibility, the ability to work with others, a good sense of humor, and a firm foundation in drama education. We are looking for someone who is excited to become a part of our community and who enjoys and understands the middle school learner. The ideal candidate will convey a love of learning and instill in our students a curiosity about our world and the desire to apply what they learn to other disciplines and the world around them. Assignments will include drama instruction and productions in the middle grades while also working to support the Middle School team with activities ranging from carpool and lunch duty to involvement in learning team meetings. While not required, coaching or club sponsorship experience is always valuable in an independent school community.
