Brown School is currently looking for motivated and hard working individuals with a passion for working with children to work in our after school program as a counselor. The program runs Monday-Friday from 2:45-5:30* for students in Nursery-8th grade.

The children are split into 3 groups that include:

The responsibilities of the AfterSchool counselor include:

  • Interacting, playing and assisting the students
    • Counselors working with students in grades 3-8 will also oversee a homework hour and can help students as needed.
  • Communicating positively with parents when they come to pick up their children and assuring every child is signed out as they leave.
  • Assisting with various arts and crafts projects and bringing kids to different enrichment activities within the school.
  • We are also always looking for individuals with a special talent or skill that they may want to teach to the children (music, art. etc…)

About Brown School

The Brown School community is strong and supportive, and we believe that our students deserve not only an academic education but also a place to enjoy traditions and experiences that they cherish for years to come. Our faculty and administration are committed to mindfully educating each individual student in a nurturing and collaborative environment.

Our School Day

Our school song states that “Brown School is joy, friendship, and laughter. Memories dear, now and long after. Working each day, growing together. Brown School is learning and love.” Even though we have modernized our teaching and offerings, these words hold true even decades after they were written.

Beyond the School Day

Brown School students of all ages have a plethora of options available after the school day is over. Whether it is partaking in the after school or Plus programs that offer a purposeful place for students while parents are working, exploring new interests or established hobbies, or getting together beyond the walls of our school, our Brown School community is strong.
