Application Tips

Put your best foot forward.

Success Mindset

We look for candidates who exemplify these key characteristics throughout the application and interview process.

Mission-Minded

You care about making the world a better place, and you’re ready to dig in to make that happen. We’re redefining what’s possible in public education and we’re looking for like-minded people to join us.

Ready to Lead

Ready to Lead

You’re inspired to lead, and you measure your personal and professional growth by the leadership skills you acquire. Our organization is designed to encourage and reward leadership whether you’re in front of a class or working with colleagues.

Learners

We inspire students to become lifelong learners and expect you to be one too. You revel in your ability to grow and change according to need and welcome feedback and coaching that will help you achieve your goals.

Hard working

You’re driven to do your very best, and you’ve never been afraid to put in the hard work to achieve at a high-level. We provide incomparable support and mentorship, but you are ultimately responsible for your own success and the success of our scholars.

Emotionally Intelligent

You build strong relationships based on trust with colleagues and students, and with parents, recognizing that they are an essential partner in our work. And you have the depth to navigate it all judiciously and empathetically.

Application Process

Step 1

Apply

Once you’ve found a job at Success Academy that speaks to you, submit your resume and a cover letter. We take cover letters very seriously, and won’t consider an application without one.

Step 2

Phone Interview

If your application suggests that you are a strong fit for our organization, we will schedule an initial interview. At this time, our team may also recommend additional positions that fit your skills.

Step 3

In-person Interview(s)

Following a successful phone call, you will be invited for an in-person meeting. Depending upon the position, you may have one-on-one or group interview(s).

Step 4

Placement

If you are accepted for a school role, you will be placed at one of our 46 schools across Brooklyn, the Bronx, Manhattan, and Queens. All Network Office employees work at 95 Pine Street in Manhattan.

Your path to Success doesn't end with your first day —
we’re committed to helping you grow and progress within our organization.
