When you start your career at Success Academy, you join a fast-paced, innovative organization where remarkable people are working boldly and urgently to overturn the vast educational inequities that block opportunity for too many American children. Our teachers bring their creativity, passion, and drive for excellence to help us build extraordinary K-12 public schools where children — and the adults who work there — are nurtured and empowered to reach their fullest potential.
Success Academy teachers are not viewed as rookie employees. They are the architects of their classrooms, crafting a vision and swiftly growing their skills as project managers, communicators, and motivators-in-chief.
Our educators have accelerated opportunities for career advancement in instructional and school leadership tracks, as well as pathways into curriculum development, training, and more. SA teachers also have the opportunity to pursue a free master's degree after one year in the classroom.
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 teachers are supported by a dynamic, entrepreneurial team that shares ideas and know-how and takes collective responsibility for the well-being of every child. Receiving intensive year-long training, coaching and mentoring from instructional leaders, and ample curricular and classroom resources, our teachers are set up to succeed.
While we believe that everyone benefits from being a teacher, we recognize that standing up in front of a classroom isn’t for everyone. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to help us redefine what’s possible in public education and learn applicable skills that will serve you and your career in the process.
Do you have a head for business and process? Are you eager to make an impact in the lives thousands of children? Our Ops teams are the behind-the-scenes heroes that keep our schools running smoothly. Get hands-on experience that can jumpstart your career.
Do you have a deep interest and expertise in a specific field, but aren’t comfortable with the idea of leading a classroom? A career in the Ed Institute -- planning, designing, and implementing curriculum, instruction, and training -- could be the perfect place to start your career.
Amdy Fall, (St. Francis College), transitioned his career from sports to teaching. Amdy Fall explains why he made the switch and why he wouldn't teach anywhere besides Success Academy.
Success looks for candidates with a passion for and a deep understanding of their subject area. Those qualities, combined with Success’s professional development, can take someone with little or no teaching experience and make them confident and adept in the classroom.
