Benefits

Collegiate School employees enjoy the exceptional location of our campus that’s built in one of Virginia’s most vibrant cities, and a highly competitive salary that supports their standard of living.

We recognize that a strong benefits and compensation program enables us to attract and retain outstanding faculty and staff. Collegiate offers a comprehensive package that includes expansive options to meet the varied needs of eligible employees.

Responsibility

Collegiate School employees have one of the most important duties in the world - preparing the next generation of dynamic, creative thinkers who are compelled to make a difference. Our expectation of our students is high because our standards of professional and personal excellence in our staff are even higher.

Everyone who works here plays a critical role in providing a challenging and supportive environment. Our students don’t turn to us simply for classroom instruction. They rely on our teachers, coaches, administrators, counselors and staff for guidance, direction and encouragement. Not just a skill set, a mindset – where character is as important as creativity, integrity accompanies intellect and service partners with leadership.

Culture

At Collegiate School, we’re committed to creating a community of faculty and staff as rich and diverse as the world around us. We celebrate our differences and learn from each other’s strengths. Our environment of inclusion fosters open communication, deep collaboration and instructional freedom, and is backed by strong administrative support.  

Further, the growth of our employees is just as important to us as the growth of our students. It’s why we provide generous professional development funding to interested, qualified members of our faculty and staff.
