HR/Business Office Staff


Collegiate School employees enjoy the exceptional location of a campus situated 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.
Collegiate School employees have one of the most important duties in the world - helping our students become creative thinkers and responsible citizens. Our expectations for students are high because our standards of professional and personal excellence for our staff are even higher.
Everyone who works here plays a critical role in providing a challenging yet supportive environment for learning and development. Our students don’t turn to us simply for classroom instruction. They rely on our teachers, coaches, administrators, counselors and staff for guidance, encouragement and nurturing nudges to do their best. The Collegiate experience is not just a skillset, it's a mindset – where character is as important as creativity, integrity accompanies intellect and service partners with leadership.

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. 
The growth of our employees is just as important to us as the growth of our students. It’s why we routinely provide generous professional development funding to interested, qualified members of our faculty and staff. As one grows, we all grow.
