Joy and Fulfillment of Educating Differently

Empower students to recognize themselves as strategic pathfinders and holders of great wisdom. Welcome to Athena Academy, where your teaching career makes a transformative turn for students and yourself.

 

Your Mission

If your passion is to create environments that help students feel confident and believe in their wisdom, then we want you to educate with us.

With a mixture of conventional and pioneering educational methods, we focus on teaching dyslexic children how to own their neurodiverse talent. As we hope you do, we believe this makes them stronger students who feel academically and emotionally renewed.

If you trust that children who feel confident about how they learn, do better in school, we invite you to explore these employment opportunities and consider how your talents and aspirations align with ours, making us both better.
