Alpha Team Values

  • Students come first
  • We iterate incessantly
  • We pursue excellence
  • We work together and respect each other
  • We believe people are limitless

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.

Academics

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.

App and Data

Focused on evaluating and selecting the best adaptive learning software on the market and tracking student progress, our App and Data team includes data scientists, app experts, and programmers who utilize data to tell an individualized story for each and every Alpha student. This team builds visualizations to empower academic teams to better understand and track student progress, provides training, and ultimately, ensures the academic success of every student at Alpha.

Operations

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.

Admissions

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.

Recruiting & People Operations

People are our most important asset at Alpha, so we invest to make sure we’re attracting and building high-performing, collaborative teams united around disrupting education together. Our recruiting team is focused on attracting and hiring the best people for Alpha, while our People Operations team focuses on delivering an employee experience on par with our student experience.
