Working at Great Oaks Charter Schools
What sets Great Oaks schools apart from other college preparatory charters is the Great Oaks Fellowship: a selective cadre of recent college graduates who deliver individualized instruction to every student every day. In addition to providing individualized instruction, fellows mentor students to support social and emotional growth.
The Great Oaks Fellowship is a diverse group of recent college graduates with a variety of backgrounds and interests. Some fellows are interested in education policy and wish to experience life on the ground in an urban school. Others plan to pursue a career in medicine, law, or to enroll in another graduate program and wish to first give a year of service. For fellows who wish to become high-performing teachers, the Great Oaks Fellowship offers multiple pathways to certification.
