Employment at CH-CH

Chapel Hill-Chauncy Hall School is a college-preparatory day and boarding school that embraces differences in learning style and culture in a small, supportive community. If your answer is yes to the following questions, you should consider joining our faculty.
  • Are you in search of a school that supports your work as someone who understands that students don't all learn in the same ways or at the same rates?
  • Are diversity of culture, ethnicity, and learning style qualities you value in a school setting?
  • Does the idea of teaching small classes appeal to you?
  • Are you interested in working in an environment in which you are encouraged to build strong, positive relationships with your students and their parents, with your colleagues, and with administrators?
  • Would you like to be involved in developing and implementing curriculum that reflects an outcomes-based educational approach?
  • Would you enjoy easy access to both a thriving metropolitan area and the beautiful New England countryside?
We begin each year with an extensive orientation for new teachers aimed at introducing them to the school, to our students, and to what we consider to be the best teaching practices based on current educational research. New faculty learn to successfully address a range of student learning styles in the classroom. Teachers begin the year with a practical knowledge of methodologies appropriate to the multiple intelligences, learning modalities, and learning differences to be found in their classes.

Classes are small, rarely larger than fourteen. The student/teacher ratio is 5:1.
"I work in a progressive environment, one that actively incorporates differences… Students have the luxury of interacting with different cultures, races, ethnic backgrounds, and learning styles every day in the classroom. Women occupy administrative positions, a typically male arena. Faculty are promoted from within, and there are real opportunities for advancement. Staff and faculty are involved in significant discussions of real issues. These are the hallmarks of an open-minded environment, where people work hard, but all are valued."

#8 Kindest Place

"It's one of the kindest places I've ever worked."

-Cindy Ludlam, Former Dean of Faculty, Gallery Director and Visual Art Teacher
