Codman Academy Charter Public School (K1-12, 350 students) is a nationally recognized leader in innovative urban education, including our unique partnership and shared facility with Codman Square Community Health Center in Boston’s Dorchester neighborhood.
As an EL Education school, our mission is to provide an outstanding, transformative education to prepare students for success in college, further education and beyond. We educate the whole student: mind, body, and character. With the city and world as our classroom, we build a school community rich in rigorous academics and daily experiences of discovery. We continue to support our alumni in realizing their potential after graduation.
Codman Academy Charter Public School is seeking Math and Humanities Tutor candidates to provide individualized instruction to Grade 9 or Grade 10 students. Successful candidates have prior experience in tutoring and behavior management, and with special needs students and English Language Learners. If you are interested in becoming an educator, volunteering as a Tutor is a great way to sharpen your teaching skills while getting to know the inner workings of schools.
ALL CODMAN ACADEMY TEAM MEMBERS BELIEVE IN:
- Rigor and High Quality: As a small, college preparatory school, we have high intellectual and character expectations for our students and our staff. We believe in the American Youth Foundation’s motto, “My own self, at my very best, all the time.” As an EL Education Credentialed School our demanding academic curriculum is based on EL’s design principles; students engage in experiential learning across disciplines. Exemplifying this approach, Humanities Department Chair Sydney Chaffee was named 2017 Massachusetts Teacher of the Year.
- Social Justice and Serving our Community: We value learning through meaningful experiences that affect our daily lives. We look to be active members in our community and expect the same from our students. Walk Boston awarded former Science Teacher Maggie Sachs Mahmood the Golden Shoe Award for using the study of velocity and physics to improve pedestrian safety in Codman Square. The Community Service-Learning Advisory Council awarded the Service Learning Teacher Award to Equity Coordinator Lisa Graustein.
- Integrated Health and Education: CACPS is co-located with our founding partner, the Codman Square Health Center. Together we’ve formed Codman2, an innovative partnership that aims at improving the physical, mental, and socio-emotional health of our community. Our partnership earned the first Mayoral Prize in Innovation in Health Care. CACPS also earned the Gold-Level Massachusetts School Wellness Award, which noted a high level of student involvement in the wellness program, coordination with the Codman Square Health Center, and exemplary whole school approach to fostering wellness.
