About seventy-five minutes southwest of Boston sits a distinguished New England preparatory school currently celebrating its quasquicentennial yet simultaneously embracing a vision for curricular innovation often associated with schools founded in this century.  Pomfret School, a boarding school located on 500 rolling acres in Northeastern Connecticut, has for the last five years worked diligently to define and implement a modern learning environment—one that is student-centered and attuned to contemporary teaching and learning research—while continuing to honor the best of its rich heritage.  Recently, the school implemented a strategic plan, created an innovation institute, and rolled out several bold changes under the tenure of the institute’s inaugural director.

An exciting chapter two awaits the Pomfret community and the next Director of the Grauer Institute for Excellence and Innovation.  The school seeks a visionary, empathetic, and inspiring curriculum innovator and change agent, who, with the supportive leadership of the head of school and in partnership with the dean of academics, will continue to redefine the entire arc of student learning.  The director will be provided with on-campus housing and participate as a full member of the Pomfret community.  Along with a supportive leadership team, the next director will have a chance to make a lasting impact on independent school education not just at Pomfret, but nationwide.  This position reports to the head of school and starts July 1, 2019.
