We’re looking for visual, theater, dance, vocal and symphony summer program directors at Sem. Join our summer creative arts programs where work meets play and transformative experiences and collaborations happen.
Wyoming Seminary, or “Sem” as it is affectionately known, is situated in the beautiful Wyoming valley of northeast Pennsylvania, famously dubbed, the “valley with a heart.” In close proximity to the Poconos, the area contains many opportunities for outdoor pursuits with its picturesque mountains and lakes. Sem is also only two hours from New York City and Philadelphia.
Known as a school that encourages faculty and students to develop individuality and strength of character, there are abundant opportunities for student participation in a wide variety of well-developed athletic, artistic, and extra-curricular activities. Wyoming Seminary has always been a caring, diverse school that enrolls students from around northeast Pennsylvania, the United States and the world. With 174 years of successful educational service and a tradition of academic excellence, Wyoming Seminary enjoys a strong place in the independent school world.
Sem is where students can study their creative craft and present it on stage, in an ensemble, on the dance floor, or in a gallery. Sem’s creative arts programs are broad and deep, with a seasoned, dedicated faculty who nurture students to develop the full range of their creative talents. Our recently completed $16.3 million Kirby Center for Creative Arts provides professional-level practice rooms, classrooms, a dance studio, as well as a 600-seat theater with technology, lighting, and acoustics that rival those found on many college campuses. Recent acts to appear on stage at Sem include the world-renowned José Limón dance company and Wynton Marsalis and his jazz quintet, among others.
The director is responsible for all aspects of the program design and management. This position reports to the Director of Summer Programs and works in unison with the Director of Creative Arts Enrollment to market program and recruit students. This is a seasonal summer contract employment with required program design and planning before arriving on SEM’s campus in early July.
