High School Math & English Positions Available

Satellite Academy High School is seeking teachers who want to join a committed group of educators that have created an environment for our students that values compassion, learning, and high expectations. Satellite Academy is a transfer high school which serves a diverse population of young adults between the ages of 16 and 20 years old. As a member of the New York Performance Standards Consortium of schools, SAHS has a waiver from NYSED to offer alternatives to the NYS Regents Exams in all subject areas except English. (We still use an English PBAT, our alternative to the Regents exam, in addition to the ELA Regents exam.) Students come to us to get a second chance at their high school diploma, but along the way they find that our school is really about helping young people see possibilities in their lives…like going to college and becoming leaders in their communities. We develop a strong sense of belonging through our advisory classes that focus on relationship building. Our goal at Satellite Academy is to be a transformative experience in students’ lives.

Key Design Elements:

  • Emphasis on Performance Assessment
  • Block scheduling (60 minute periods)
  • Over two and a half hours of staff professional development built into the weekly schedule
  • Collaborative decision making model
  • Advisory system that connects students to one teacher from admission through graduation and beyond

Candidates should have experience and interest in:

  • Developing student-centered and engaging classroom experiences
  • Designing coherent curricula based on school/departmental frameworks
  • Collaborating with colleagues to ensure strategic alignment of instructional strategies to maximize the impact on student outcomes
  • Using innovative and relevant data to support student learning
  • Building positive relationships with students with an emphasis on character building
