We are hiring!

The challenges that today’s young adults face are enormous and very personal. That’s why we focus on educating one student at time.

  1. Strong instructional leadership and team management skills
  2. A belief that students should be at the center of their own learning
  3. The expectations that all students will be prepared for post-secondary mobility
  4. The ability to build deep relationships with students and peers
  5. Strong convictions for your own personal and professional beliefs
  6. The pursuit of a variety of interests beyond education
  7. The ability to lead, influence, and motivate others
  8. A track record of resourcefulness and being solution-oriented
  9. Demonstrated ambition and longevity in personal and professional pursuits
