Independent Schools Fellowship Program
We are pleased to be able to offer the Independent Schools Program, a masters degree program created in partnership with Mt. Holyoke, for Fellows employed by Maine Coast Semester at Chewonki.
The Independent Schools Fellowship (ISF) is for aspiring and early career educators who would like to build their experience while getting their graduate degree. It is an opportunity for Fellows to get into the world of teaching, with the support of mentors and the coursework to help you: learn how to develop curricula, effectively engage students and manage your classroom, and be a good coach and advisor, and be a leader in your school.
Fellows may elect to enroll in a two-year Master of Arts in Teaching program offered through the Independent Schools Teacher Leadership Program at Mount Holyoke College. This specialized course of study is designed for full-time educators working in independent schools who want to enhance their teaching and/or prepare for leadership roles. Enrolled students choose from two tracks: one focused on teaching pedagogy and the other centered on honing leadership skills.
