Established in 1983, the Culver Fellows program currently offers a rich experience for recent college graduates who want to explore various career opportunities at an independent boarding school.
While our program focuses mainly on those whose interests lie in teaching, we also offer fellowships in such areas as wellness, communications, technology, and athletics. This program provides apprenticeships through which individuals gain the knowledge and experience necessary to pursue successful careers in secondary independent schools as well as valuable work experience for dynamic and highly motivated young adults pursuing opportunities outside of the educational field.
Culver Fellows participate fully in the life of the Academies under the direction of mentor teachers, counselors, and coaches. These mentors help the Fellow learn the basics of teaching and coaching methodologies, classroom management and group dynamics, as well as parent/student relationships. In addition to working in their chosen academic field, Fellows assist with extracurricular activities, working with an impressive array of student athletic teams or in the Academies’ rich and active Fine Arts program. Fellows live in furnished dormitory apartments and assume duties that allow them to become an integral part of the residential community.
