Westtown School is an independent, Quaker co-educational, pre-K to 12, college preparatory day and boarding school located in suburban West Chester, PA, approximately 30 miles from Philadelphia. Situated on a beautiful 600-acre campus, Westtown offers state-of-the-art facilities where our committed faculty and staff inspire and prepare our students to be stewards and leaders of a better world.
Westtown is grounded in the Quaker understanding of the Truth within and enriched by the religious diversity of our community. Every day, we want students to feel supported and empowered to let their inner Light shine.
Our teachers cultivate joy in learning, encourage students to take risks and make mistakes, and equip them with real-life problem-solving skills for their own fulfillment and the betterment of the world.
We aspire daily to celebrate differences, affirm intersectional personal identities, cultivate cultural competency, and mitigate the detrimental effects of privilege by making privilege conscious.
In all that we do, we are inspired by your children, energized by their presence, and excited to help them realize their unique gifts.
Character matters. A lot.
Quakers believe that there is that of God in every person - the Inner Light - and that divine truth is revealed to those who seek it. These ideals are central to the vision of the school and are evident in how we relate to and nurture our students. Because we are guided by Quaker principles, we are committed to education that focuses on
Spiritual growth and religious awareness
Social responsibility, justice, and peace-making
Helping students to become people of solid character, to nourish their hearts as well as their minds, is as important to us as their achievement of academic excellence. In fact, we believe the two go hand in hand.
. As Westtown strives to fulfill our commitment to being an anti-bias, anti-racist (ABAR) school, we are seeking culturally competent educators with a demonstrated commitment to and ongoing professional development in the areas of diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice, which is evidenced in their personal and professional interactions, curriculum, and pedagogy.
Westtown School offers competitive benefits to all full-time employees including; health and dental coverage, a generous 403b contribution, STD, LTD, and life insurance.
