Major Responsibilities and Duties
Browne Academy, located in Alexandria, Virginia, is a diverse coeducational independent school enrolling students age three through grade eight. Founded in 1941, Browne Academy inspires and empowers students through extraordinary academics to be lifelong learners prepared to thrive in a dynamic global community. Browne Academy began as one of the first integrated schools in Virginia. Today that spirit of inclusion endures, as our core values – excellence, diversity, character, and community – are an integral part of our school’s tapestry. By encouraging all members of our community to exemplify these values every day, we are building a foundation of empathy and respect that will serve our students throughout their lives.
We believe in providing our students with experiential learning opportunities that encourage thoughtful questioning, personal engagement, use of the greater community, and a deeper understanding of the world. Through our inquiry-based approach, we strive to foster our students’ natural curiosity and develop their lifelong love of learning.
We intentionally keep our class sizes small to nurture each child’s academic, social, and emotional growth. Students feel safe and cared for in such an environment, and as a result, we see them thrive. Our graduates are equipped both academically and personally to navigate life after Browne Academy with confidence.Interested candidates for all grades should submit a cover letter and resume to Kim McCue, Head of Lower School, firstname.lastname@example.org
