Equal Employment Opportunity

​​​​​​​Mercersburg Academy abides by both the spirit and the letter of the law in all its employment and admission policies. The school provides equal employment opportunities (EEO) to all employees and applicants for employment without regard to race, color, marital status, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age, national origin, genetic information, or disabilities which do not prevent performance of essential job tasks. This policy applies to all terms and conditions of employment, including recruitment, promotion, demotion or transfer, termination, transfer or layoff, leaves of absence, disclipline, compensation, and training.

Faculty Positions

Faculty positions—both teaching and administrative—require a commitment to boarding school life and can include residential life (advising, dorm duty) and coaching/cocurricular responsibilities. While applications for faculty positions are accepted all year, recruiting begins in early January for announced retirements and in March for other possible openings.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Staff Positions

Mercersburg Academy employs nearly 150 staff members, in addition to our faculty, in diverse departments from development to facilities to technology. We seek applicants who share our desire to embrace the value of hard work, character, and community.

Cocurricular Positions

Mercersburg's expansive co-curricular programming serves all of our students and includes arts, athletics, community engagement, and outdoor education. Positions are posted as needed and when available. These positions may be part-time or may be connected with a full-time faculty or staff position, if skill sets and the school's needs align. Applicants who can embrace the school's mission and values and who demonstrate a commitment to provide young people with transformational experiences are encouraged to inquire and apply for our open positions.
