Internationalism. Democracy. Environmentalism. Adventure. Leadership. Service. These are the pillars of Round Square, an international network of 200+ schools in 50+ countries that The Athenian School co-founded. Athenian, a grades 6-12 day and boarding independent school located on 75 acres near the rolling East Bay hills of the San Francisco Bay Area, has been living out its mission of experiential learning as a Round Square school since 1966.
These six core values are also the pillars of a new role at Athenian: dean of experiential education. The “Pillar Dean,” as this role is affectionately known at Athenian, will be charged with coordinating several all-school experiential learning programs, but more importantly with bringing those experiential principles of learning-by-doing to the core curriculum. Thus, the dean of experiential education will serve as a critical bridge and mentor to middle and upper school faculty. The Pillar Dean, a 12-month role that reports to the assistant head of school / middle school head, starts July 1, 2021.
