We are hiring! Join Our Team!


CASA Academy seeks extraordinary teachers who are ready to change the educational options for low-income students in central Phoenix. At CASA, we are not just a school, but a movement to raise the bar for education in Arizona.

Why teach at CASA Academy?

We change the future.

At CASA Academy, we change the future. Literally. Every day, teachers will work with students to ensure their academic success while simultaneously shaping their character and making every child feel loved, valued, and respected.

We are a community.

At CASA, we value our students and staff above all else and strive to be more than just a school. We are a team of professionals who are a family, committed to closing the achievement gap here in Phoenix.

We embrace a growth mindset.

We pride ourselves in our ability to provide our teachers with excellent observations and coaching. One-on- one coaching occurs on a weekly basis and staff have a school-wide professional development each Thursday. We also offer 2-3 weeks of summer professional development and four days of all-day professional development for staff throughout the year.

We have fun!

CASA is a fun and joyful learning environment. We have a free snack bar, coffee bar and beverage station for staff. We also enjoy fun activities as a team including taco nights, monthly lunches organized by our PTO, holiday parties and surprise gifts and treats throughout the year!

Salary and Benefit Information

We offer a comprehensive benefits package in which we cover 80% of medical, dental and vision costs. You will also have the option to contribute to a voluntary 403(b) plan.

Our starting salary is well above the average starting salary for the state of Arizona. We do not have a salary scale, however, we do negotiate salaries with teachers who bring prior teaching experience to our school.

We offer a yearly bonus to teachers who obtain an “effective” or “highly effective” rating on their end-of-year evaluations. We also offer a yearly retention bonus to returning teachers.
