Careers at Acera

Acera is growing!

What began with a small group of students in 2010 has evolved into a thriving K-10 community of nearly 150 students. As our student body grows, we remain committed to offering what makes Acera unique, like student voice and choice, individual learning plans for every child, small math classes that are organized based on ability rather than age, mentor-supported passion projects, and electives in lab science, social science, art, engineering and woodshop.

At Acera, we believe that school should catalyze students’ passions, free their potential, and safeguard their innate curiosity and love of learning. Our faculty are “teacherpreneurs” empowered to engage students deeply in themes and topics that matter to them.

Our current openings are listed below. If you have questions about teaching or other careers with Acera, please reach out to
