Working at MKA

When you join the MKA faculty and staff, you will meet committed and enthusiastic professionals who deeply engage in their work with young people. MKA continuously seeks to add to its ranks educators who not only are experts in their fields of study, but also take a creative and flexible approach to working with students and with each other.

We look for educators who see themselves as learners. MKA’s robust faculty development program supports teacher growth in a variety of ways: teachers attend in-house summer enrichment workshops, participate in national conferences, create curriculum with the support of school-sponsored grants, and develop personalized, inquiry-based questions to drive their learning during the school year.

Teachers new to MKA should expect to join a faculty in full swing, one that examines current research, considers new instructional strategies, explores new uses of technology, and collaborates to develop ideas. Also, they should expect to work deliberately and persistently with their peers to create a collegial and collaborative atmosphere based on mutual respect, intellectual curiosity, and institutional loyalty. MKA promotes an inclusive environment that celebrates differences and supports all members of our community.

Our salaries and benefits are competitive with other leading independent day schools of similar size in the East. Across-the-board raises, merit pay, and special one-time bonuses shape the structure of our compensation. Our benefits package, which includes dental and life insurance, is among the strongest of all private schools in New Jersey. Opportunities for administrative experience are also available as the school takes pride in cultivating its own leadership.

Employment Opportunities

It is MKA's policy to provide equal employment opportunity to all qualified persons regardless of age, race, creed, color, national origin, ancestry, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic background or disability not related to the requirements for being a successful employee at MKA. We especially welcome applications from all individuals with the ability to contribute to MKA’s continuing commitment to social and cultural diversity, inclusiveness, and the transformative power of our differences.
