Careers at Carey

Great Opportunities for Great People

At Carey, we are always interested in meeting passionate educators and administrators who can add to our vibrant learning community.

A Wonderful Place to Work

Teachers enjoy collaborative opportunities to work with other faculty as well as the autonomy that marks the teaching experience in independent schools. We seek individuals who are committed to the standards of teaching excellence. We encourage lifelong learning through a robust professional development program.

Exceeding the requirements for an independent school, The Carey School hires credentialed teachers with a minimum of a bachelor's degree in education and/or their specialty. Many of our teachers have advanced degrees.

The Carey School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, nationality, ethnic origin, gender, or sexual orientation in its hiring practices. The school seeks educators from diverse backgrounds and all candidates are encouraged to apply.

Equal Employment Opportunity

The Carey School is committed to equal employment opportunity and a respectful workplace.  State and federal laws protect individuals from workplace discrimination and harassment based on certain legally protected characteristics.  The School’s policy uses the term “legally protected characteristics” including race, sex (including pregnancy, childbirth, and related medical conditions, breastfeeding and conditions related to breastfeeding), religion (including religious dress and grooming), color, national origin, ancestry, physical or mental disability, medical condition, marital status, registered domestic partner status, military or veteran status, sexual orientation, age, gender (including gender identity and gender expression), genetic characteristics and information, or any other basis prohibited by law.  This policy governs all aspects of employment at the School, including hiring, assignments, training, promotions, compensation, employee benefits, employee discipline, and discharge, and all other terms and conditions of employment.

Code of Conduct

The School encourages close, warm relationships between students and school faculty and staff. At the same time, it is important each employee’s conduct is at all times professional. Employees must maintain appropriate boundaries between themselves and students to ensure they avoid even the perception of inappropriate conduct. Some activities may seem innocent from an employee’s perspective but may be perceived differently from the perspective of a student or parent. The objective of this policy is not to prevent positive relationships between employees and students, but to prevent relationships that could lead to, or may be perceived as, inappropriate or sexual in nature. Employees must ensure they do not cross the boundaries of a professional relationship at all times.  Carey faculty and staff are ambassadors of the Carey values whether they are on campus or representing the School within the Carey community.

We Value our Employees

At Carey, we value having an adult community that is inclusive of different backgrounds, cultures, perspectives and life experiences. Our faculty salaries are competitive with the local public, parochial, and independent schools on the mid-peninsula of the San Francisco Bay Area. In addition, The Carey School offers generous health insurance and benefits, including a robust professional development program, student loan repayment assistance and we provide a varied and healthy lunch buffet to all adults on campus.
