Job Description

About Us

Ednovate Charter Schools are growing open-enrollment college preparatory high schools established in partnership with the University of Southern California. Our mission is to prepare students from traditionally underserved communities to use their college degrees and careers to make a positive multigenerational change. We want to find innovative ways to use space, time and combine great teaching with cutting edge technology to increase the number of students who graduate from college. At the end of our first growth phase, we will serve ~2,300 students in grades 9-12 in five schools. Our network of schools will continue to expand over time to operate multiple high-achieving public charter school campuses and set the bar for what is possible in a high school blended learning environment.

Principal Residency

We are seeking two Founding Principals to work in Southern California to open up our seventh and eighth innovative high schools. The Founding Principal will go through a two year residency program where they will learn about our network and then design their school. They will be responsible for recruiting a full ninth grade class of students, hiring a full founding staff and working with Ednovate leadership to implement and iterate on our innovative HS model. This is an incredible opportunity for a driven educator to impact students' high school experience by thinking creatively about school design within Ednovate's school culture and academic parameters. 


The ideal candidate is:

  • Passionate about increasing the college attainment rate in low-income communities
  • Certain that all students can go to college
  • Entrepreneurial and enjoys having autonomy, flexibility and accountability
  • A collaborative team player who works well with other adults and engages in healthy conflict to get the best results for students
  • Resourceful and persistent, constantly seeking to improve upon results
  • Someone who strives to be the best at what they do and has fun along the way
  • Committed to personalizing learning for each student and willing to learn with us as we innovate in our use of space, time, the role of teachers, and technology
  • Comfortable with a high degree of transparency around results and accountability for results
  • Supportive of our warm/strict discipline model and effective in maintaining a consistent, disciplined classroom
  • A graduate of a four-year university
