Partnership with Teach For America

This means staffing schools with outstanding teachers and school leaders who are dedicated to academic excellence. Teach For America’s Education Leadership Initiative works to connect the 550 alumni school leaders and 8,000 alumni teachers with opportunities to create transformational change in schools. Teach For America is able to meet Lighthouse Academies’ growing demand for exceptional principals and other school leadership positions in its expanding network of schools. Lighthouse Academies offers several pathways to leadership and partners with Teach For America to recruit alumni for these roles.
