Stride Christian Academy is looking for promising leaders to co-create a school of the 21st century.

The Opportunity

Do you want to change the world? Only three times in human history has the opportunity for learning changed as dramatically as it has in our decade: the invention of written language, the invention of the printing press, and the invention of the internet. What’s possible in a K-12 school has changed just as fundamentally.

Stride Christian Academy is part of the Acton Academy network, a new school model praised by the Gates Foundation’s former Executive Director of Education as “one of the most important education developments in the world.”

If you’re interested in education and innovation, this is your chance. Being a mentor at Stride Christian Academy is more like being a leader of a small, fast-paced startup. We believe that every young person who enters our doors will find a calling that can change the world. This journey needs innovators and leaders – perhaps you.

Who We Hire

Those most successful at Stride Christian Academy are not just looking for a job; they’re looking for a calling, on their own journey to leave the world a better place than they found it. After several years, Mentors here will go on to start their own schools, start their own companies, or join a top tech firm or graduate program.

Top candidates often come from diverse backgrounds in:

  • Design (graphic, experience, product, design thinking, etc.)
  • Innovative education
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Building (“maker-space”, architecture, craftsmen and hobbyists, etc.)
  • Outdoor adventure (climbing, canyoneering, etc.)
  • Consulting, finance
  • Writing, blogging, publishing
  • Photography, painting
  • Engineering, hard sciences
  • Music
  • etc.

These backgrounds enrich the environment and are frequent sources of inspiration for projects.

Perhaps you’ll choose a career at the frontier of education and social entrepreneurship. Perhaps you’ll land at a large tech firm, or a top graduate program. We’re on your team to get you there.


We hire people who:

  • Can build strong relationships with children ages 3-18 (depending on the studio)
  • Love to learn, and have a vision for how that can be different, and better
  • Have a track record of excellent work and commitment in the discipline(s) they’ve committed to, wherever that is
  • Feel called to a job that truly makes an impact, goal oriented, and passionate about personal growth
  • Embrace technology and the nearly infinite opportunity it offers for learning and growth
  • Embrace the innovation cycle, including iterating, failing, improving, and trying again

These backgrounds enrich the environment and are frequent sources of inspiration for projects.


Full-time positions include:

  • Elementary Mentor (Starting Late Summer 2021)

Stride Christian Academy Mentor’s role is to design, plan, and execute the core learning experiences in a collaborative, multi-age Studio.

Mentors are expected to work five days a week, spending time in the Studio as well as planning, designing new ideas and materials, documenting, communicating with parents, and performing administrative tasks.

Compensation for all positions is competitive.
