We’re Hiring!

Are you the kind of person who can connect with students of all ages, from eleven years old to twenty years old? Are you the kind of person who can work one-on-one with those students on a large variety of subjects and share your passion for learning with students who may not have it yet? Because this position requires an individual who can really and truly inspire these kids, who can show them all the ways school can be incredible.

We’re LiHigh School, a small Approved Independent School located in Poultney, Vermont. As our new Program Guide, you’ll be working with one-on-one with students in our Therapeutic Program, which caters to young people who require a high need of support, including everything from ADHD to autism to students with severe behavioral disorders. Our therapeutic model is based on each staff member developing trusting relationships with each student before we challenge the kids to take risks with their learning, embark on new experiences, and expand their awareness of the world.

It take a special person to be successful here. You have to be extremely comfortable with our ever-shifting dynamics and days filled with lots of uncertainty. On the other hand, you’ll receive the freedom to develop your own project-based curriculums and the opportunity to help shape the future of a small but incredible school.

To qualify, you must have a valid VT driver’s license, a safe vehicle, a deep well of patience and caring, and the desire to truly make a difference in a young person’s life. For more information, email our director at greg@lihighschool.org.

Hi, I'm Kyle. I'm an advisor at LiHigh School. I've been involved in progressive education since I was in high school. I was an original member (and student representative) of the Progressive Program at Green Mountain College, and for my Master's degree, I attended Goddard College, which started the trend toward progressive education in the 1960s. Along with teaching at LiHigh School, I teach courses in creative writing and communications at Green Mountain College. I live with my wife and daughter in Poultney.
