At Success Academy, we have set out to transform K-12 schooling in science, technology, engineering, and math so that every child experiences a rigorous, engaging STEM education that equips them with the skills, knowledge, and confidence they need to pursue these fields at the highest level. We seek candidates who bring curiosity, determination, and expertise in their STEM fields.
Our STEM educators are catapulting kids to lead the nation in science and math achievement while growing skills in public speaking, strategic data analysis, and project management that provide a strong professional foundation for virtually any career.
Success Academy science and math teachers have accelerated opportunities for career progression in instructional and school leadership roles — including Assistant Principal of STEM — as well as pathways into curriculum development, training, and more. After one year in the classroom, teachers also have the opportunity to pursue a free master’s degree in education.
As highly-skilled, high-impact professionals, our teachers are compensated as such. They receive competitive salaries, generous paid time off, comprehensive health plans, retirement benefits, and employee wellness programs that include free fitness classes onsite at schools.
Our STEM educators are supported by a dynamic, entrepreneurial team that shares ideas and know-how and takes collective responsibility for the intellectual growth and well-being of every child. Receiving intensive, year-round training, coaching and mentoring from instructional leaders, and ample curricular and classroom resources, our teachers are set up to succeed.
At Success Academy we like to capture memorable moments. Take a peek at our scholars and teachers in action.
Our focus on STEM begins in kindergarten, with hands-on science five days a week taught by a dedicated science teacher, and continues through high school where students engaged in college-level math, physics, computing, science, and engineering.
Our STEM teachers are facilitators of inquiry-based learning, challenging scholars to pose and pursue rich questions, develop their own approaches to solve these problems, and use rigorous reasoning to make sense of the concepts they are learning.
Our innovative curriculum purposefully contextualizes STEM lessons so that kids understand that STEM offers powerful tools for wrestling with issues that matter to them and their communities. From asking kindergarteners to figure out how to divide a cookie evenly among three friends, to challenging high schoolers to assess the economic impact of a higher federal minimum wage, our STEM teachers press and empower scholars to solve relevant, real-world problems.
The kids get to learn by exploring and that’s one of the most exciting things about working here. You’re seeing them get to that answer. It’s the highlight of the day every single day.
