Impact Education

Join the ClassiCorps Teaching Fellowship

At Classical Charter Schools, we equip scholars with the tools to transform the communities in which they live. To do that, we continually invest in our most critical resource: our teachers. The ClassiCorps Teaching Fellowship is an opportunity to earn a free Master of Arts in Teaching Degree while completing hands-on training in the classroom at one of New York City’s highest performing schools. If you’re ready to make a difference in the lives of scholars in the South Bronx, apply today. 

The ClassiCorps Teaching Fellowship has provided me with the opportunity to teach a rigorous curriculum while practicing strong management skills. It really helps new teachers feel supported from all angles and it has been a great way for me to explore my passion for education.

Coming from a background in research, it's a breath of fresh air to be on the other side of data analysis. Classical Charter Schools is intentional in their use of data to respond to scholar's needs. Additionally, I am being developed as an educator whose belief aligns with the purpose for Classical's existence - that every child can learn, no matter their circumstances. Being surrounded by dedicated individuals who work hard every day makes all of my work worth it.
