Harlem Village Academies is home to a community of educators working together to uplift students through its rich tradition of culturally-responsive and progressive pedagogies. We hold ourselves accountable for creating learning experiences that inspire and require the highest levels of intellectual sophistication, and we aspire to learn, live, and work in schools that reflect our philosophy.
You share our vision for an equitable and democratic society, achieved through learning practices that emphasize fiercely independent thinking and the highest levels of intellectual sophistication. HVA’s expectations for teachers are aligned with our educational philosophy and supported through professional development. In brief, we expect teachers to engage students in sophisticated and challenging work that involves complex questions, requires deep thinking, and sparks intellectual curiosity. We expect teachers to empower students.
We have a competitive health insurance (Cigna medical, dental and Guardian Vision). HVA matches 100% of contributions to 403B plan up to 4% of salary. We offer FSA partnered with American Benefits Group and Pre-tax Transit. Some of our schools have free parking while others follow regular, NYC street parking guidelines.
