Join an Alpha team
Alpha isn’t set-up like a typical school. Instead, our teams are designed to be iterative, have a bias toward action, and work cross-functionally with ease. Learn about each of Alpha’s teams to understand where you might fit in.
Members of our academic teams are not regular teachers. Instead, we hire “kid-experts” (Guides) who can coach and motivate students and plan engaging workshops. Our school directors spend their days building exceptional Guide teams, refining the workshops that deliver the skills students need to succeed, and developing individualized goal-setting plans that incentivize students to do great work.
Alpha’s Operations Team builds and runs the systems that run Alpha. From facilities, to our farm-to-table lunch program, to finance, enrollment, and construction, Operations keeps Alpha operating smoothly. If you have a knack of simplification, find joy in implementing systems, and thrive in a fast-paced environment, Ops at Alpha is likely the place for you.
Filling Alpha with students is the name of the game for the Alpha admissions team. The student experience is our focus when it comes to enrolling students at Alpha, so we’ve built an approach where families are at the center of the process. A small but mighty team of “people people,” we love building genuine relationships, casting Alpha’s vision, and helping families determine if Alpha is the best fit for their child.
