Founded in 1660, Hopkins is a co-ed independent day school for students in grades 7-12. We are located in New Haven, CT, an ethnically and socio-economically diverse city home to Albertus Magnus College, Southern Connecticut State University, University of New Haven, and Yale University. We draw our students from over sixty towns across the state and are committed to high academic excellence with strong athletic, arts, and service programs.
The large majority of our faculty members do not hold teacher certifications, as they are not required in independent schools in Connecticut, but do have strong backgrounds in their content area. We look to hire talented and devoted educators who are willing to take on roles in the school beyond the classroom: serving as academic advisers, coaching, and leading student activities; serving as administrators; and participating fully in the life of our school. Though we do not offer an internship/fellow program, we hire teachers directly out of undergraduate programs and support their growth as educators, professionals, and community members.
Hopkins School believes that all persons are entitled to equal employment opportunity, and it prohibits discrimination because of race, color, creed, sex, religion, national origin, age, gender, gender identity, genetic information, physical or mental differences, veteran status, marital or civil union status, sexual orientation and other legally protected classes or classifications.
Moreover, we value diversity in all forms and understand the benefits and necessity of educators from all backgrounds and experiences. Specifically, we are seeking to increase the racial and ethnic makeup of our faculty, not only to be more reflective of our student body but also to acknowledge the richness of a community comprised of different people.
