Welcome to the home of LEADERS Mission: Culver educates its students for leadership and responsible citizenship in society by developing and nurturing the whole individual, mind, spirit, and body, through integrated programs that emphasize the cultivation of character. Culver Academies is a private boarding school. We enroll students and employ faculty and staff from across the United States and around the world. Culver Academies seeks diverse and talented educators who value the core commitments of all Culver faculty, support the Culver mission and principles, and embrace the Culver teaching and learning model. At Culver, we are always looking to strengthen our organizational leadership by adding outstanding talent to our faculty and staff whose passion is to serve our students. Located on the shore of Lake Maxinkuckee, Culver Academies encompasses 1,800 acres of green hills and woodlands, and a historic collegiate-like campus with beautiful Gothic architecture. Our location in Culver, Indiana, offers the best of both worlds; a beautiful, serene setting with access to large cities nearby, including the home of the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana. We are also less than two hours away from Chicago and Indianapolis.
The Fellowship Program at the Culver Academies was established in 1983 and currently offers a rich experience for recent college graduates who want to explore various career opportunities at an independent boarding school. While our program focuses mainly on those whose interests lie in teaching, we also offer Fellowships in such areas as wellness, communications, technology, and athletics. This program provides apprenticeships through which individuals gain the knowledge and experience necessary to pursue successful careers in independent secondary schools as well as valuable work experience for dynamic and highly motivated young adults pursuing opportunities outside of the educational field.
Culver Fellows participate fully in the life of the Academies under the direction of mentor teachers, counselors, and coaches. These mentors help the Fellow learn the basics of teaching and coaching methodologies, classroom management and group dynamics, as well as parent/student relationships. In addition to working in their chosen academic field, Fellows assist with extracurricular activities, working with an impressive array of student athletic teams or in the Academies' rich and active Fine Arts program.
