Working at MKA
MKA provides a warm, collegial and intellectually stimulating working environment. We are a professional community of educators who support and complement one another's strengths and interests. We enjoy a constructive and respectful relationship among faculty, administration, students and parents that is based upon our commitment to the mission of the Academy, clear policies and procedures, high expectations of one another, and a culture of support and accountability.
At MKA, it is the commitment to students combined with the ethos of professional development that inspires our faculty to continually expand and improve upon their subject area knowledge and their teaching craft. Opportunities for professional development are unequaled (for more information, see left) and MKA is committed to providing all teachers with the tools and the training to make sure that they have every opportunity to support their programs with state of the art technology, including the provision of personal laptops.
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 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.
Recent surveys of parents and alumni demonstrate that the faculty is considered to be MKA's finest asset and that the quality of teacher-student relationships is exceptional. We welcome your interest in the Academy, encourage you to explore our web-site thoroughly, and invite well-qualified professionals to consider teaching at our school.
