At Arizona Charter Academy, we know that effective teacher training is essential. We believe in providing our staff with leadership positions and opportunities to grow their careers in education, and we provide professional development at all levels of the organization.
We have an award winning culture and positive environment where everyone is collaboratively working toward the same goal. We recruit the brightest, most committed, and most capable teachers. Culture awards include:

Unparalleled professional development. Teachers receive targeted, relevant, and strategic professional development that focuses on lesson execution, data analysis, and school culture. In addition, we provide time in the schedule for weekly professional development for teachers to work in grade-level teams and as a school.
Continuous improvement. A relentless pursuit of excellence continues to propel our staff and students to the next level. ACA has an instructional team of teachers and administration who investigate cutting edge research based curriculum and instructional practices, analyze data to determine areas of need, and implement strategies. Ongoing professional book clubs, current article reviews and school visits are just a few of the ways ACA’s team stays current on the latest trends and continue to develop as professionals.
Through comprehensive and highly selective recruitment efforts, extensive training and mentoring, weekly professional development, and regular observations with feedback, ACA teachers are part of a professional learning environment that facilitates growth.
Competitive Salary. We offer a very competitive base salary with additional stipend/bonus options offered with most positions. We believe extraordinary staff members should be rewarded for their amazing work, rather than having a salary scale that provides set increases for everyone regardless of performance. We also offer a wide variety of optional opportunities including leading teams, after school programs, clubs, and others that provide additional compensation.
Outstanding Benefits. ACA is a member of the Arizona State Retirement System, a defined benefit plan providing a lifelong retirement benefit and long-term disability insurance. We also pay for 100% of the cost of health, life and dental insurance for employees. Other benefit options include vision coverage, additional life insurance, short term disability insurance, a variety of additional retirement plan options and a section 125 plan.
