Employment

Pomfret is a boarding and day school located in the appealingly rural northeast corner of Connecticut. The school is committed to preparing students for the intellectual rigors of college and the personal, social, and moral demands of adolescence and adulthood. Pomfret seeks educators with passion, purpose, and personality.

We believe our faculty must teach with passion, instruct with purpose, and be able to make the classroom experience memorable. Our teachers must commit to spending time with students, getting to know them as people, speaking honestly with them, holding them accountable, and demonstrating by doing. We also believe faculty must exhibit the same values they hope to instill in their students – a love of learning, a commitment to excellence, a concern for the common good and respect for others, a strong work ethic, and empathy. Finally, we seek faculty members who are willing and skilled at working together to create a positive environment for learning and growing.
