Transform your teaching. Transform your thinking. At Bread Loaf, you’ll join a dynamic community that shares your passion for the power of words.
Your opportunity for exploration expands far beyond the Bread Loaf classrooms.
Students and faculty regularly participate in creative programming and hands-on experiences, including outings to local cultural sites, hikes, film showings, theater productions, discussion and reading groups, coffee houses, musical performances, sporting events, and dances.
See the individual campuses for their unique offerings of activities.
Theater at Bread Loaf
Bread Loaf incorporates the theater arts into the student experience at all three campuses—whether traveling to see live performances, bringing the actors into the classrooms, or staging a full production with students and faculty.
Bread Loaf Teacher Network
The Bread Loaf Teacher Network (BLTN) fosters transformative education in schools and communities and is a life-changing antidote to teacher isolation. You are invited, as a Bread Loaf student, to join BLTN, a collective of educators, youth, and community organizers committed to sharing practice, scholarship, community, and activism.
Admissions and Funding
About 75-80 percent of our students are middle and high school teachers of English, language arts, and humanities subjects, though participants also include writers, editors, and other professionals. While our students come from a variety of backgrounds and have a range of goals, they share an impassioned interest in reading, writing, and the power of words to change the world.
We’re also actively committed to helping you find the financial resources you need to apply. Financial aid is available in the form of grants and loans. Special fellowships and scholarships for teachers can cover up to $10,000 in tuition, room & board, and other costs of attendance. There are also on-campus student jobs available at the Vermont campus.
