Employment

Oak Meadow is a homeschooling curriculum publisher and a distance learning school with over 600 students enrolled worldwide in grades K -12. We seek resourceful, dynamic individuals to join our talented, inclusive group of educational professionals in supporting Oak Meadow’s growing community of distance learning families.

Our staff and faculty are deeply committed to providing an engaging, personalized education for our students. Staff members work in our Brooks House headquarters in downtown Bratteboro and in our open and sunny converted warehouse space in the Cotton Mill building. Faculty members work from home, and they come to Brattleboro once-a-month for faculty meetings devoted to the sharing and cultivation of best practices in distance learning.

Before applying for any positions, we recommend reading the educational philosophy behind our award-winning curriculum and our unique distance learning model (Oak Meadow was the first distance program to earn accreditation by the prestigious New England Association of Schools and Colleges). You might also want to meet our K-8 and High School faculty, read the latest issue of our educational journal, Living Education, and browse our bookstore to familiarize yourself with our curriculum.

To apply, please send a letter of interest with your resume to hr@oakmeadow.com. In your letter, be sure to tell us how your experience could support the Oak Meadow mission.
