Success Academy Jobs - Application Tips

Put your best foot forward.

Success Mindset

We seek candidates with a bachelor’s degree and an outstanding record of academic achievement. Our ideal candidates exemplify these key characteristics:

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.

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.


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.


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.

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.
