About Great Oaks Charter Schools

The mission of the Great Oaks Charter Schools is to prepare students to succeed in college. What sets Great Oaks Charter Schools apart from other charters is the use of a high-dosage tutoring model implemented by the Great Oaks Tutors Corps, a group of recent college graduates who provide two hours of daily tutoring to every student. At Great Oaks, we are committed to providing a rigorous 6-12 academic program, fostering a positive school culture and building authentic relationships with families. We are seeking hard-working, tenacious people who share the belief that all students deserve a high-quality education.
