As a ClassiCorps fellow, you'll be a part of Classical's mission to provide an exceptional education for students in the South Bronx

The ClassiCorps Teaching Fellowship provides the opportunity to become a leader in the fight against educational inequality. We believe that a ZIP code should never determine the quality of a child’s education, and fellows help us challenge that notion.

Teach with Purpose

For some, the ClassiCorps Teaching Fellowship is a chance to teach under a coaching structure that advances their career quickly. For others, it’s an opportunity to do meaningful work and further their education before they pursue something else. For everyone, it starts with a simple application. Where it goes is up to you!
