Employment Opportunities

Like you, we believe all children can learn, regardless of the challenges they face outside school. At Haven Academy—the nation’s first school designed specifically for children navigating the foster care or child welfare systems—we bring that commitment to life by combining trauma-informed instruction, rigorous academics, and social-emotional curricula to support all our students.

You’ll join a specialized team of teachers, social workers, behavioral specialists, an on-site pediatric nurse practitioner, and counselors—all working together to ensure our students’ emotional and academic success. Our staff includes professionals with educational and clinical backgrounds in attachment theory, learning and behavior interventions, emotional disabilities, post-traumatic stress, and child and family mental health.

Located just two stops from Manhattan in the Mott Haven section of the South Bronx, our schools enjoy a 13:1 student-teacher ratio, giving you the chance to form trusting relationships with your students and colleagues.
