Alumni Advice

“The written word is critical in business. The ability to clearly and concisely express yourself in e-mail, presentations and social media channels is critical. Use your liberal arts education as an advantage, even if you don't have the tangible skills an employer is looking for. Critical thinking and communication skills are hard to teach in the workplace.  Long term success is not predicated on what you know now. It is based on your ability to learn and sell yourself and your ideas.” Harry Bennett, ’90, Speech Communication, Regional VP, Digital Experience Solutions, Amdocs

Paid 2015 Summer School Teaching Internship Program

The Phillips Exeter Academy Summer School invites a number of outstanding college graduate students, seniors, and juniors, who have expressed an interest in teaching as a career, to participate in an apprenticeship in residential school teaching with our Summer School faculty.

The Summer School welcomes to campus more than 780 students for five weeks of academic study, athletics, and exploration that carry participants far beyond the classrooms and the playing fields. The Upper School—comprised of students who have completed grades nine, ten, eleven, or twelve—enrolls over 500 students who come to us from more than forty states, Puerto Rico, Washington, D.C., and forty-five foreign nations.  Access Exeter—open to students who have completed grades seven or eight—provides a challenging academic program for approximately 280 students. Together, these students embody a rich diversity of language, culture, religion, and race.

A talented, highly experienced group of more than one hundred and seventy women and men comprises the Summer School Faculty. Many teach at the Academy during the academic year; some come to us from other private schools, public schools, and from colleges or universities. 

Teaching Interns work closely with experienced instructors. In addition to developing close working relationships with faculty mentors, Interns participate in seminars on teaching and residential life. They attend their own class, a seminar on the art of teaching, and participate in evening programs. The Intern Program is coordinated by a team of faculty members who help Interns explore the complexities of teaching in and beyond the classroom. Interns have opportunities for co-teaching and, by term’s end, for teaching on their own. 

Interns live in dormitories under the supervision of veteran faculty members and share in overseeing the residential program. Dormitory responsibilities include working with a small number of advisees, taking duty nights, and establishing an adult living presence in the residence halls. The Director of Student Activities assigns Interns chaperoning responsibilities for Polar Bear swims, evening social functions, and off-campus excursions (whale watching, trips to museums, etc.). 

Summer School 2015 opens Sunday, July 5th, and closes Saturday, August 8th, with Interns arriving a week early for orientation. The Intern stipend is $3,195 plus room and board.  Completed applications must be postmarked by January 21, 2015

The Teaching Intern Application Form and Teaching Intern Recommendation Form can be found on the Intern Application page under the Teaching Opportunities heading on our website at

Application materials can be sent by mail, email, or fax.
