Dearborn Academy is a private therapeutic day school located in Newton, Mass. We enroll up to 60 students in Grades 3-12 who have specific learning disabilities and/or mild to moderate emotional challenges. We offer a rich academic program, which includes college and career preparation, diversified student support and explicit instruction, combined with our strong clinical component. This allows students who have been unsuccessful in previous school settings to achieve substantial gains. 


The school offers a rewarding workplace for those interested in a broad range of careers in education from teaching to counseling to administration and more. A diverse workforce with a variety of talents and perspectives, we share a commitment to the dignity of every student and the idea that the best learning is never one-size-fits-all.


We offer a competitive compensation package, a lively group of colleagues, and opportunities to make a real impact in the lives of students and our communities.
