Employment

Berkshire School is a boarding community dedicated to serving the best interest of the students and adults living within it. We hire proven leaders who recognize the benefit of hard work, building community and sharing success. While most full-time faculty will teach four sections, coach two seasons and work within the residential program, every successful employee working at the School understands and appreciates the twenty-four hour nature of a Berkshire education, which is why working at Berkshire is a way of life and not simply a job.

Berkshire School is an equal opportunity employer.
