Career Opportunities for Student-Athletes

As a student-athlete, you appreciate teamwork and the impact of great leaders—great coaches and teachers, in particular. Maybe you have that gift—to mentor and motivate, to educate and make a difference. If you’ve enjoyed working with children or adolescents – perhaps as a camp counselor or a youth league coach – you may have the background and the gifts that schools seek: the ability to connect with kids and teenagers. Private and independent schools seeks teachers that can reach the whole student through being a classroom teacher, mentor, and coach.

Athletic programs train champions for life, teaching young student-athletes to pursue excellence, persevere through adversity, and place team first.
