We’re Hiring! Refer
a friend and Earn $500.

If you refer a full-time employee who we hire, you’ll earn $500!

With 46 schools – and counting! – Success Academy is always looking for extraordinary individuals to join our team of educators and staff both in schools and at the central network office. We are recruiting driven leaders who are passionate about public education reform. Do you know someone who may be a great fit?

If you are a current Success Academy Employee, please submit your referral through the HR ticketing system. If you are not a current employee, please follow the steps below.


How do I refer a candidate?


Referring an excellent candidate is a simple two-step process.

  1. Advise all interested candidates to apply for a current opening on our website: Candidates must select “Referral — Non-Employee” for source and reference your name in the “person” field.
  2. Fill out the Non-Employee Referral form to the left. This will help manage the influx of resumes we receive and will be necessary for tracking purposes.

How and when will I receive my bonus?


The reward grants a $500 bonus for referring any candidate who is hired for any full-time position throughout our network. (All monies are subject to relevant federal, state, and city taxes.)

You will receive your referral bonus once the referred full-time candidate has been employed at Success Academy Charter Schools for 120 days and in good standing. A member of our HR Team will contact you near the 120-day mark to request up-to-date contact information to ensure that we can mail your bonus in a timely manner.

How can I spread the word?


In addition to reaching out directly to those you think may be interested, consider sharing posts from our LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter on your own social media pages. Remember that if someone applies after seeing your post, they will still need to list you as a reference.
