YOU BELONG HERE.

The fellowship is named in honor of the Rev. James H. Flye, an Episcopal priest and teacher, who dedicated much of his life to the education of students at one of SAS’s predecessor institutions, St. Andrew’s School. Father Flye’s devotion to young people and enduring mentorships with his students were immortalized in the publication of Letters of James Agee to Father Flye, which chronicled his ongoing correspondence with his former student and Pulitzer-Prize winning author, James Agee.

- Coaching middle school or varsity basketball, tennis, or volleyball.

Qualified candidates will have a bachelor’s degree with a major in Spanish or significant course work in Spanish language and culture studies, interest in passing the joy and discipline of that along to others, immersive experience in a Spanish speaking country, and a desire to learn to respond with empathy to a diverse community of learners.
Fellows will work under the close guidance of a faculty mentor and receive a stipend, housing (including utilities and basic cable), meals when school is in session, health and dental insurance, worker’s compensation, short-term and long-term disability, group life insurance, retirement plan, and eligibility for grants for professional enrichment and continuing education.
