Internationalism. Democracy. Environmentalism. Adventure. Leadership. Service. These are the pillars of Round Square, an international network of 180+ schools in 50+ countries that The Athenian School co-founded. Athenian, a grades 6-12 day and boarding independent school located on 75 acres near the rolling East Bay hills of the San Francisco Bay Area, has been living out its mission of experiential learning as a Round Square school since 1966.

At Athenian, leading educational technology is more about creating an invitation for faculty to experience and explore new ideas than it is about deploying hardware for the sake of rapid change. Athenian seeks a director of educational technology who is skilled at building faculty partnerships and adept with technology design and implementation — from both an instructional and systems point of view. The job includes oversight of two IT professionals and affords the opportunity to collaborate with numerous coordinators, deans, and directors working in different co-curricular domains. The next director of educational technology at Athenian will start July 1, 2021.
