Concord Academy, an independent college preparatory school for grades 9 through 12 located in Concord, Massachusetts, anticipates a choral teaching position in its Performing Arts Department beginning in the fall of 2018. Chartered in 1922, the school currently enrolls approximately 382 boarding and day students from ten countries and territories and fifteen states.

Students are engaged in a community animated by a love of learning, enriched by a diversity of backgrounds and perspectives, and guided by a covenant of common trust. Students and teachers work together as a community of learners dedicated to intellectual rigor and creative endeavor. In a caring and challenging atmosphere, students discover and develop talents as scholars, artists, musicians, and athletes and are encouraged to find their voices. The school is committed to embracing and broadening the diversity of backgrounds, perspectives, and talents of its people. Common trust challenges students to balance individual freedom with responsibility and service to a larger community. Such learning prepares students for lives as committed citizens.

The school seeks to appoint an outstanding choral director and teacher in support of the school’s strong and well-established music program. The arts are valued as a central division of the school’s curriculum. The Music Program deepens students' understanding of and love for music through a wide range of offerings that demand rigorous engagement, individual practice, and refined performance. Instruction is available at every level of background and achievement, from the beginner to the very advanced. The faculty works with students according to individual interests and potential. Course offerings span all genres including classical, jazz, and popular styles; advanced topics outside the curriculum may be undertaken through Departmental Study. Students may elect a program of study that provides a solid foundation for pursuit of an undergraduate major in music or acceptance to a conservatory.

The successful candidate will be an accomplished musician and an energetic, innovative educator with excellent interpersonal skills, demonstrated organizational ability, and a passion for working with adolescents and supporting their discovery of creative potential through music. The Choral Director will be responsible for teaching and conducting the school’s Chorus and auditioned CA Singers group, serving as musical director for musical productions, teaching in the music curriculum (possibilities include music history, theory, composition, digital music technology), and overseeing the student-led a cappella groups. Preferred qualifications include a master’s degree and three or more years of experience teaching at the secondary or undergraduate level.

We actively seek applicants who reflect and support our mission-driven commitment to creating and maintaining a diverse and inclusive school community. The School provides a competitive benefits package and salary is commensurate with experience. All faculty members at Concord Academy participate fully in the life of the School; responsibilities include advising, serving on committees and/or clubs, and periodically providing an adult presence at school events. Coaching an athletic team is welcomed but not required and is remunerated separately. On-campus housing may be available, but it is limited, and faculty members are not required to live at the School.

Interested candidates are asked to send a cover letter, transcripts, and resume to:
