Deerfield Academy seeks three Class Deans for grades 9, 10 and 11 to start on August 2022. We are looking for leaders who care deeply about the wellbeing and growth of our students, bringing the best out of them while holding them accountable.  They should be committed to developing an inclusive community and driven to effect positive change through creative, collaborative and practical problem-solving.



Deerfield offers an unmatched environment for teaching.  Near the Five Colleges (Amherst, Smith, Mount Holyoke, Hampshire, and UMass Amherst), Deerfield’s 300-acre campus hosts exceptional facilities that enable powerful teaching both in and out of the classroom. Our students are engaging and excited to learn—and they are willing to work hard at their studies. Our teachers enjoy an outstanding work environment and excellent benefits.


Our faculty are committed to ongoing renewal. We seek candidates who are committed to their own professional growth, who are eager to work with colleagues in a productive manner towards team goals, and who can foster critical thinking, empathy, and determination in our students. As a boarding school, our faculty teach, mentor, and model—in the classroom, in the dorm, at the dining hall, and on the playing field.


Diversity is essential to Deerfield’s success. Diverse perspectives within our school population fuel creative and innovative thinking, build empathy and consideration, and provide varied skills and experiences from which the entire community can benefit. Deerfield actively seeks candidates who are members of or support traditionally underrepresented groups—especially in terms of race, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic background.
