Selection Process

Lighthouse Academies uses a rigorous selection process to ensure we are hiring highly-qualified educators to serve our scholars. The teacher selection process takes an average of six weeks, and the leader selection process takes an average of eight weeks. While lengthy, both processes are designed to give candidates ample opportunity to demonstrate their skills and to interact with Lighthouse Academies’ team members.

Hiring timelines vary by position and location, but the typical selection process includes:

1) Application Submission and Review

To be considered for a position, apply online via our career center. Once submitted, your application is sent directly to the hiring manager who will review it and determine next steps.

2) First Phone Screen

Qualified candidates will be invited to a first phone screen to learn more about your fit with Lighthouse Academies and the position.

3) Second Phone Screen

Candidates moved forward will complete a second phone screen to learn more about your qualifications and skills.
