The success of our Summer Program is rooted in its sense of community. Vital to the definition and perpetuation of this warm community are the faculty, who embody the ethos and tenor of the community with their unstinting commitment to the positive experience of each student and collective support of their colleagues.
In addition to teaching classes, the role of the faculty may include:
- Advising students
- Coaching recreational athletics
- Coordinating and chaperoning events
- Mentoring Interns
- Senior Administrative Roles (Student Life, Residential Life, Best Self Curriculum Coordination, etc.)
- Dormitory or other supervision
Though several of our Summer Program faculty are full-time employees of The Loomis Chaffee School, a number hail from other schools. Each adult has, among numerous distinguishing traits, abundant energy and passion for working with adolescents.
Emphasis on Belonging
The success of our summer program starts with administrators, faculty, and interns who feel compelled to support one another while nurturing students who seek a learning community that expands their worldview and imbues an authentic sense of belonging. We are committed to diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB) in all aspects of our program, so we seek to recruit a cohort of adults who believe in this commitment and reflect the remarkable diversity of our student body. Prospective faculty and interns who derive inspiration from this commitment are encouraged to apply.
