New Faculty Recruitment Page
Robert College--the oldest American school outside of the U.S.-- is a high school educating very bright and highly motivated Turkish students. In terms of its perception as a premier private secondary school in the country, it holds a comparable position to Eton in England, or Andover or Exeter in the U.S. Large numbers of its graduates have made significant contributions in many areas of Turkish culture, government, academics, science/engineering, and business.
The school is both bi-lingual and bi-cultural: English is the language of instruction for Mathematics and Science as well as English language and literature courses. Physical Education, Computer Science, and Music and Art courses are also taught in English.

Teaching at Robert College is always a challenging, interesting experience, given the impressive strength of its students in terms of their ability, their creativity, and their motivation to learn. (They are also in general very friendly, open, and fun students to be with.) Education is widely recognized as the ONLY real key to success. Teachers rarely complain of being bored at Robert College! The flip side, however, means that teachers, too, must be bright, creative, hard-working--and, most of all, confident in both their content areas and pedagogical skills. For much more information on our expectations of teachers, candidates should click on Expectations of Faculty Members at Robert College.
Please note: All social studies/history courses are taught ONLY in Turkish by Turkish nationals--following the regulations of the Turkish Ministry of Education. Also guidance/counseling professionals are bi-lingual Turks. We do not have positions in business education, home economics, industrial arts, or special education.
Most importantly, applicants for all positions should be aware of the formal requirements for approval to teach in Turkey. Please click on Qualifications.
The best way to apply for any positions is to send by either e-mail or fax: a short letter spelling out your interest and qualifications, a CV and contact information (preferably e-mail) for a minimum of three professional recommendations. Information can be sent by air mail, if necessary, but this method can take up to two weeks, and sometimes longer.
