Overview

Classical is a National Blue Ribbon award-winning network of schools located in the South Bronx. Though our neighborhoods are historically under-served, we provide a world-class, well-rounded education to our scholars through a classical curriculum that includes art, music, Latin, debate and citizenship.

 

ClassiCorps is our selective fellowship for recent college graduates of all backgrounds with an interest in education or social justice. ClassiCorps members teach for three years as fully-salaried teachers, simultaneously earning their Master’s in Teaching—paid for by Classical.

Responsibilities

ClassiCorps members are full-time faculty members, and share our undying commitment to maximizing student achievement. Our teachers have a razor-sharp focus on the school’s mission and the drive to meet their key responsibilities:

  • Leading all scholars to gap-closing academic gains. Scholars must achieve mastery and advanced mastery of grade-level Common Core State Standards to succeed through college.
  • Establishing and maintaining a “no-excuses,” highly ordered classroom culture where scholars and staff demonstrate respect, responsibility, caring, trustworthiness, fairness, and citizenship.

ClassiCorps members receive:

  • Summer preparation—observing, attending sessions, and leading instruction during Summer Learning Academy.
  • Intensive coaching, including observations and debriefs with instructional coaches twice per week all three years.
  • A Masters’ in Teaching—paid for by Classical Charter Schools—completed during the first two years.
  • Full salary and benefits, starting at $50,000 per year, and rising to $70,000 after their Master’s is completed.

All while working to provide a world-class education for students in the South Bronx.

 

ClassiCorps begins in June 2018, with some flexibility for June graduates. Successful ClassiCorps members are encouraged, but not required, to continue their work with Classical beyond the three-year commitment.
