St. Paul’s School announces a search for a position of chaplain to begin duties in late August 2014. This individual will join a team of Episcopal and interfaith chaplains. Reporting directly to the Dean of Chapel, the chaplain’s primary responsibilities will include sharing in the sacramental, pastoral, and educational ministry of the chaplaincy and teaching in the Humanities Division, which includes Religious Studies courses, or in one of the other academic divisions. Responsibilities might also include the following: pastoral counseling; advising fellowship groups; overseeing social justice initiatives; or coordinating one of our many relationships with outside organizations and communities. In addition to chaplaincy, teaching, or administrative responsibilities, faculty at St. Paul’s School are responsible for a variety of activities typical to the boarding school environment, including advising, dormitory association, coaching, committee work and other duties. For those interested, this chaplaincy position may also be filled through enrollment in the Penn Residency Master’s in Teaching Program, allowing individuals to deepen their experience in the classroom and participate in an innovative educational experience.*

*St. Paul's School is part of the Penn Residency Master’s in teaching program, in partnership with the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education. The program lasts for two years and involves work in two summers, one week each, at Penn, online work with the entire cohort of 25 fellows from all the schools, one weekend a term at one of the consortium schools with the Penn faculty, course work with a mentor at St. Paul's, as well as the regular work of teaching fellows on the School's faculty. After two years the fellows will earn a MSEd from Penn and have two years teaching experience.
The regular workload for a teaching fellow at St. Paul's for the full year is to live in a dorm and be part of all aspects of the residential life of the School, and usually coach (or assist) an interscholastic team for two seasons. In the fall term of their first year the fellows sit in on classes but do not teach on their own. In the winter term they start to teach on their own, but with the support and guidance of their mentor, and in the spring they generally teach one or two classes on their own. In the second year, fellows will teach two classes every term.
