Description

The mission of Equitas Academy Charter Schools is to provide a structured, achievement-based community that prepares students to graduate from four-year colleges and universities. Equitas Academy has been recognized as a California Distinguished School and Gold Ribbon School by the California Department of Education because of our commitment to data-driven instruction and providing a rigorous and equitable education for all students. We currently serve over 1,200 students and operate two elementary schools and two middle schools in the Pico-Union neighborhood of Los Angeles, with a growth plan to open four additional schools and serve over 3000 students by 2022.

 

We value:

  • High Expectations: Structured and disciplined classrooms, school-wide behavioral code of conduct, and school uniforms
  • College Readiness: Extended school day and year, enrichment activities, and preparation to enter top-performing middle, high schools, and, ultimately, college
  • A Family Partnership: Ongoing communication with parents about academic and behavioral progress, at-home visits by staff, and family workshops
  • A Safe & Supportive School Community: We help our children make positive choices through our school values of curiosity, optimism, gratitude, grit, self-control, social intelligence, and zest.

 

To help us achieve our mission, we are seeking to identify a leader who will dramatically increase our ability to ensure that Equitas alumni maintain a college going identity and effectively stay on a path towards college graduation. Equitas alumni matriculate to a variety of high schools, both public and private, and this role requires significant outreach to build relationships and promote services and events. The ideal candidate should not only be a model of our core values, but also a driven, talented leader of alumni students who builds relationships while ensuring we achieve results.
