Classical was founded in our nation’s poorest congressional district to address the stark inequality of access to education. Through a classical curriculum and a highly structured setting, we support our scholars to become liberated citizens of impeccable character, ready to excel in college preparatory high schools.
The ClassiCorps Teaching Fellowship is our signature three-year program, designed to accelerate new teachers’ development while providing the opportunity for immediate and meaningful impact.
ClassiCorps fellows are full-time, paid faculty members who share our undying commitment to leading scholars to impressive new gains. Fellows learn and employ our rigorous instructional model, simultaneously earning their Master’s degree in Teaching.
How does it work?
The program starts in June, when you receive initial training and supervised classroom experience.
When the school year starts, you work as a full-time teacher, implementing our world-class curriculum and rapidly improving your practice through in-school training, twice-a-week coaching, and graduate courses.
The first two years you earn $54,000 and full benefits—plus tuition for graduate school. The third year, as a fully-certified teacher, you earn at least $70,000.
Successful ClassiCorps members are encouraged, but not required, to continue their work with Classical beyond the three-year commitment. Learn more about teaching at Classical.
Who are we looking for?
ClassiCorps members are recent college graduates or career changers who:
Have little or no previous formal instructional experience.
Are aligned to our mission and model.
Want to accelerate their career in education, committing at least three years to our network.
Have a record of high achievement and drive toward outcomes.
ClassiCorps begins in June, with some flexibility for June graduates.
