About Us


Join Our Community

Severn School seeks to attract, retain, and support faculty and staff who embrace the mission of our school. To challenge our 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 children in grades PS through 12. Severn School is an equal opportunity employer.

Severn School is located approximately six miles from Annapolis on two separate campuses in Arnold and Severna Park, Maryland. Teel Campus, housing Severn's Middle and Upper Schools, is a 19-acre campus is in the heart of Severna Park, a 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. Chesapeake Campus, which is home to Severn's Lower School, is 2 miles down the road in Arnold, Maryland.  

New Faculty Support

Our 122 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. 

Tuition Remission

Each full-time faculty and staff member is eligible for 50 percent tuition remission for children admitted to the School.
