Work at Davidson Day

At Davidson Day, we teach with meaning to deliver our mission: fostering academic excellence through collaboration, creativity, and character development.

Why Work at Davidson Day?

List of 3 items.

  • Small Class Size

    Our small class size enables our teachers to form close relationships with students. Our teachers get to know each student, how he or she thinks, and how to motivate each one to reach his or her full potential. We offer strong academics in a small, personal setting, which fosters creativity, collaboration and character development. Our ultimate goal is to prepare students to chart their own unique paths in college and in life. 
  • Compensation Packages

    Davidson Day School is committed to attracting and retaining outstanding employees by providing a comprehensive compensation package. A full-time benefits package includes medical insurance, life and accidental death & dismemberment insurance, and short and long-term disability for which Davidson Day pays the majority of the monthly premiums. Employees may also participate in the voluntary dental plan and enroll in a flexible spending account. We offer additional voluntary insurance plans through Colonial Life Insurance Company for additional life, accident, cancer, and medical bridge coverage. 

    Davidson Day also offers eligible employees the opportunity to enroll in a 401(k) Retirement Savings Plan.  After a one-year waiting period, Davidson Day School will contribute the equivalent of 3% of the employee’s salary based on the eligibility requirements, entry dates, and payment terms outlined in the Plan.

    Employees receive paid personal and sick leave as well as paid bereavement leave. Staff also are entitled to a generous vacation allowance and paid holidays.

    Davidson Day School is committed to educational excellence. To ensure that we meet and exceed those standards, faculty participate in all Davidson Day professional development programs. In addition, all employees are encouraged to seek out individual opportunities for professional development and present to the Professional Development Committee for approval.  

    All full-time employees are eligible for 50% tuition remission for their children who attend Davidson Day School. Faculty and staff may also apply for need-based financial aid.
