Only the Best Instructors for Our Scholars
Our new NYC 9th grade Scholars are a lucky bunch. They'll be learning from 23 superstar instructors at their Saturday and weekday classes this spring. We had 220 applicants for 11 open 9th and 10th grade positions, and only an extremely talented 5% of this pool received offers to teach our Scholars.
On Saturdays, instructors will teach math, critical writing, critical reading, grammar, and vocabulary. On weekdays, 9th grade English Language Arts instructors will teach text-based discussion seminars on scholarly identity and values while math instructors will lead small group instruction to extend the core algebra unit of Saturday's curriculum.
This summer, 27 instructors will teach the 9th and 10th grade NYC Scholars during a five-week Summer Academy.
