Who We Are
Chattanooga is a city with a rich history and a bright future, a community with boundless capacity for innovation, transformation, and economic prosperity. Unfortunately, these opportunities are not equitably accessible for all members of our community. For too many residents of urban core neighborhoods, the social determinants associated with poverty create intergenerational cycles of poor academic attainment, un- / under-employment, and disproportionately poor health and social outcomes. These challenges have a disproportionate impact on young men of color.
Inspired by the success of the Chattanooga Girls Leadership Academy (CGLA) in changing the trajectory of girls from underperforming schools and moved by the tremendous needs among boys and young men in Chattanooga, Chattanooga Preparatory School will open its doors in the fall of 2018.
The first class admitted to Chattanooga Prep will be a group of 60 6th grade students who will be anxious to learn from forward-thinking and creative faculty members and administrators. A grade-level will be added each year until there are students in grades 6 through 12. At our total enrollment, we will serve 350 students.
In addition to an exciting and innovative environment, Chattanooga Prep offers benefits to include:
- Health and Wellness Insurance [full-time positions]
- Retirement [TN Consolidated Retirement System, 401K, 403B]
- Accrued annual leave and sick leave
- Highly competitive pay rates
- Professional development opportunities
