About The Putney School 

Located on 500 acres of land including miles of wooded trails and a working dairy farm in Southern Vermont, The Putney School is a coeducational boarding and day school for grades 9 – 12. As a progressive school, we believe people learn best by doing.

About The Putney Summer Arts Program 

The Putney Summer Arts Program welcomes a diverse community of young artists and arts professionals to the Putney School campus each summer. The program offers a combination of arts and writing workshops for teens which provide an intimate space where those passionate about the arts receive support and inspiration. Each summer we build an intentional community. We create a space that is open and supportive of each student as they dive into their creative work and navigate their growth as individuals. Dorm living, workshops, daily sing, meals, camping, and all campus-wide events are important parts of our program. We are committed to supporting the range of experiences and expression that students share at Putney and to creating a community of understanding of one another that enriches all.

The ideal candidates will be eager to participate in anti-racist work and use an inclusive, social justice lens in their work with all students and adults on campus. Building a just and inclusive community is a shared responsibility, and Putney supports all its employees in developing this critical skill set.
