About Oli > Work at Oli

Working at Oliverian is more than a job…it’s a career, a community, a family, a lifestyle.  If you are a talented teacher, therapist, administrator or other school professional who loves working with teenagers—especially quirky, smart, creative, challenging ones—Oliverian is hard to beat.  Our class sizes are small and our colleagues are incredibly collaborative and supportive.  We pour ourselves into our work, but also know how to laugh, play, and rest.
