Faculty candidates for employment should be dynamic and energetic, with thorough knowledge of their discipline. At least two years’ experience in the classroom is preferred. A full-time faculty member ordinarily instructs four sections per semester and contributes additionally by coaching and/or leading/assisting in extracurricular activities such as theater, student publications, and community service. All faculty serve as advisors to a small group of students. In addition, Belmont Hill has a one-year intern program for recent college graduates. Posting for these opportunities are determined based on staffing needs for the upcoming year.
Belmont Hill is a safe place in which each individual brings a unique perspective to the overall experience that drives our school motto of Working Together.

The faculty and administration are dedicated to creating a community that is diverse, inclusive, and equitable.

There are three potential pathways through which full-time faculty, and when appropriate full-time staff, can pursue advanced degree study while employed at Belmont Hill.
- Pursuing graduate study while continuing to work at Belmont Hill
- Graduate study in combination with the sabbatical Program
- Early sabbatical for new faculty (after five years of full-time service)
Faculty receive a sabbatical after every ten years of service at the School. Sabbatical leave may be for a full year at one-half salary or a half-year at full salary. In certain circumstances approved by the Head of School, sabbatical pay equal to one-third salary may be substituted for sabbatical leave. Grants of up to $2,500 may also be awarded by the Head of School to support sabbatical activities that are educational or related to your academic discipline.
