The FCCA is eager to find a dynamic, passionate founding staff to help us implement our innovative vision for this very unique school!
Flint Cultural Center Academy Vision
The Flint Cultural Center Academy was developed to demonstrate the power of delivering public education in collaboration with a high performing community resource. Specifically, the FCCA, will collaborate with the institutions that make up the Flint Cultural Center, and with substantial start-up and development investments from the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, will provide a unique learning experience, resulting in the following outcomes for every student.
- Non-normative gains in their development of knowledge and skills.
- A clear sense of being welcomed to a school community that respects them, supports them, and expects them to continuously grow and improve.
- Structures and support that allow them to apply their learning and demonstrate their high-quality work.
At every step in their school experience, we want FCCA students to be supported by adults who can see the possibilities for every student, intentionally maintaining the perspective of great leaders who are not dissuaded by the current status, but who constantly seek out a future path for every student to contribute, to shine, and to succeed in their education and life.
We are looking for extraordinary leaders and learners to join our team who:
- Teach to give students a strong foundation of academic excellence,
- Foster the social-emotional and character development of young learners,
- Build a love of learning in all students,
- Engage families as partners in our students’ education,
- Commit to constant learning, reflection, and improvement of their own practice,
- Bring their passions and positive personalities to school every day,
- Thrive in a start-up environment, and
- Are committed to equity and the belief that all children in Flint can reach their full potential as learners, leaders, and world-changers.
We understand the value of having teammates that reflect the diversity of our students and their families. We strongly encourage leaders of all backgrounds and identities to apply.
