Working At Choice

Choice Schools consists of a team of educators, literacy specialists, student advocates and many other professions, but first and foremost, we are moms, dads, guardians, grandparents, aunts and uncles who love kids. As a nationally accredited, and regionally recognized education service provider, student learning is our organization’s mission. Our educators are the heart of our mission.

The purpose of school is learning. When we break it down to the simplest terms of why school exists, we are reminded that no matter the history of any student, their situation or ability, our job is to prepare them for greatness. At Choice Schools, we advocate for students by holding each other accountable for doing our best work, pushing one another to grow and reach beyond our perceived limitations. If you’re looking for an innovative and reliable organization, one that allows you to thrive as a part of a passionate team, we might be the perfect match.

Our partners’ perspective

Choice Schools has created and implemented a vision for every child to learn and grow based on his/her needs. They have instilled this mission in their educators, who strive every day to provide the tools for students to reach their full, unique, and empowered potential and purpose.”

– Lisa Gillon, Principal at Livingston Classical Academy

I have worked with Choice Schools Associates for the last 13 years. The service and support that Choice provides its leaders and schools is top notch. They have figured out a successful formula to support the schools in each facet of operation - human resources, finance, operations, and curriculum and instruction. Their support allows me to focus on the daily operation of my school.”

– Terry Larkin, principal at New Branches Charter School Academy

I could not be happier, prouder, more grateful, amazed, awestruck and relieved by our decision to partner with Choice Schools Associates to operate Ivywood Classical Academy. What an adventure this school has been. Every curveball that came our way we managed to HIT OUT OF THE PARK, thanks to our amazing partnership we have built with Choice. I recommend Choice Schools to anyone who is looking for a trustworthy, competitive, experienced, and mission-driven organization. They are simply the best.”
