Lawrenceville’s 815 students come from more than 30 states and 30 countries, with more than a quarter receiving assistance from a $10.5 million dollar financial aid budget.  Across residential, academic, and co-curricular settings, Lawrenceville challenges a diverse community of promising young people to lead lives of learning, integrity, and high purpose, inspiring the best in each to seek the best for all.

     

    The Lawrenceville School seeks enthusiastic, energetic, collegial individuals who want to work with both adults and students in a diverse, collaborative and inclusive academic setting. 

     

    Position Summary:  The Lawrenceville School Teaching Fellows are enrolled in the University of Pennsylvania’s Boarding School Teacher Residency program (part of UPENN's Graduate School of Education), in which they work toward a Masters in Teaching. The goal of this two-year program is to identify aspiring or early career educators (typically recent college graduates) with an interest in the boarding school context. Over a two-year period, the Lawrenceville School provides them with the training, skills, and experience they need to succeed as educators, as well as extensive mentoring and support. Teaching Fellows teach in an academic department, live on campus, and fully participate in the residential and co-curricular life of the School. The Lawrenceville School pays approximately 80% of fellows' graduate school tuition and fees and provides a salary, room and board for all fellows.
