Our Mission: REACH Prep provides access to transformative educational experiences that empower underserved, high-achieving students to graduate from top colleges and emerge as the next generation of leaders.

REACH Prep is currently seeking an experienced independent school educator to teach English/Writing to rising sixth graders at its Prep Academy Program located at Greenwich Country Day School.

REACH Prep is a privately funded not-for-profit organization that helps motivated and talented Black and Latino students from underserved communities in Fairfield and Westchester Counties and the Bronx gain admission to and thrive in rigorous independent schools. Upon placement, students benefit from a twelve-year educational continuum, including comprehensive academic enrichment, leadership training and supplementary individual and family guidance, which prepares them to succeed at competitive colleges.

The English/Writing teacher will teach two 50-minute sections of rising sixth graders Monday – Friday (either in the morning or afternoon). Each section will have approximately 10 students. Assessment of students’ progress will be required mid-session and at the end of the six-week summer program.

REACH Prep’s curriculum seeks to improve students’ critical reading skills, writing, and grammar and to build a strong foundation for the rigorous academic environment of independent schools for our students. With approval, there is an opportunity to make modifications to the curriculum.
