About New Canaan Country School

The New Canaan Country School (NCCS)—a private day school founded in 1916—works with families to help children attain their full academic potential. Seventy-three full-time teachers and 32 apprentices, assistants and part-time specialists work at NCCS, teaching 615 students in pre-K through ninth grade. Its resources include four art studios, three music classrooms, two gymnasiums, seven playing fields, a professional auditorium, a woodworking shop and a 40 acre nature preserve.

The Apprentice Teacher Program offers teaching experience to college graduates. Apprentices are assigned to a classroom in grades K through six and work alongside their mentor teachers. Apprentice responsibilities increase over the course of the year as they learn to plan and teach lessons, work with individual students and participate in parent-teacher conferences. Apprentices are also expected to supervise athletic and extracurricular activities.


Open to college graduates and grad students. Non-U.S. citizens are eligible. Candidates should have an interest in teaching and coaching children.
