As an Academic Director at Zeta, you will drive the academic achievement of your school while fostering a flourishing learning community amongst students, families, and teachers. With the support and guidance of the school’s Principal and our Network academic team, you will oversee tremendous academic outcomes for all students in all subjects leveraging academic data, implementing differentiated instruction, and ideating creative solutions to extraordinary challenges.
You will set the standard for excellence in content knowledge, planning and implementation. By providing meaningful and actionable feedback while building strong relationships, you will develop our teachers into an efficient and high-achieving team. You will also build relationships with students and families, driving for strong school culture.
The Academic Director owns all academic outcomes at the school, which requires a deep knowledge of the content and curriculum. It also requires ability to recognize, both in data and in practice, where teachers need additional support and development.

Every week, school teams dedicate time to engage in professional development workshops and mindfulness routines, which you would assist in creating and leading. Throughout the school day, you would support and coach your teaching staff.
As a school leader, you would also communicate often with other school and Network leaders engaging in regular leader-specific professional development.
