Severn School seeks to attract, retain, and support faculty and staff who embrace the mission of our school:
Severn School challenges its students to pursue excellence in character, conduct, and scholarship, to marshal the courage to lead, and to develop the lasting desire to serve and achieve. We believe this is best realized in a community where adults model these qualities and where each student is known and valued.
Severn School offers competitive salaries and benefits in a rewarding family atmosphere working with young men and women in grades 6 through 12. Severn School is an equal opportunity employer.
Located just north of Annapolis, Maryland, Severn’s 19-acre campus is in the heart of Severna Park, a quaint little town composed of 43,000 residents and hundreds of thriving businesses. Severna Park is located between the Severn River and the Magothy River and is highly regarded as a waterfront, family-friendly community.
74 full- and part-time faculty members allow for the small 10-to-1 student-to-teacher ratio and the average class size of 14. New faculty are enrolled in a mentoring program that assists them in acclimating to our community as well as allowing time for reflection on issues related to being a teacher. All employees are supported by the appropriate division head, the academic dean, as well as department chairs and peer mentors.
Each full-time faculty and staff member is eligible for 50 percent tuition remission for children admitted to the School. Through a reciprocal agreement, Chesapeake Academy will provide tuition assistance grants of 25 percent of the Chesapeake tuition for the 3-year-old through grade 5 programs for children of full-time Severn employees.
Faculty are encouraged to pursue professional development. Severn School assists employees in paying 75 percent of tuition costs for education which maintains or improves skills required for the employee’s current position or meets express requirements imposed by the School as a condition for employment.
Those applicants interested in applying for a faculty/staff position at Severn School should submit a letter of interest along with their resume as instructed in the open position postings.
