Why Work At Rectory?

School Profile

Rectory School was founded in 1920 when the Reverend and Mrs. Frank H. Bigelow sought to create an individualized learning program for their son, John. The benchmark program, IIP, has developed into a distinct advantage of a Rectory education. Rectory has the capacity to meet the educational needs and aspirations of a wide range of students--from strong traditional learners to those who have inquisitive minds but need more academic support.

Rectory School’s 138-acre rural campus provides a scenic and secure home to approximately 270 students covering the ages from Pre-K to 9th grade. Rectory is a coeducational institution at all levels. The 5th–9th grade junior school has approximately 210 students 145 of which are boarding students. These students come to Rectory from all around the United States and from nine different countries. The average class size is 10, and the student teacher ratio is 4:1.

RECTORY'S INDIVIDUALIZED INSTRUCTION PROGRAM (IIP) celebrates the uniqueness of each person. A pioneer among junior boarding schools in individualizing instruction, Rectory has provided our students with one-to-one instruction as an integral part of our educational milieu since our founding in 1920. Rectory's IIP is designed to address a range of academic needs (remediation and enrichment) with seamless integration into the academic day. Ask any Rectory student and learn the importance that he or she places on the relationship built between learning specialist and student.
