ASU Prep is excited to launch ASU Prep Academy Pilgrim Rest, a new public charter school in the ASU Prep Academy network. We’re looking for a diverse group of passionate and talented teachers interested in becoming founding members of this innovative school.

We’re enrolling learners in grades PreK–6 to start in August 2022 on the downtown campus of Pilgrim Rest Baptist church in Phoenix, AZ. Community-driven and innovative by design, Pilgrim Rest aligns with the ASU Prep mission to build new models for educational success and raise academic achievement for all learners.

A commitment to strong literacy skills, STEM, visual and performing arts, leadership and health and wellness guide the program. Community integration, family partnerships, personalized learning, project-based approaches and culturally relevant pedagogy support these commitments.

This is an amazing opportunity to be part of a new school launch. We’re seeking education professionals with a strong growth mindset, innovative approach, leadership skills and a commitment to the success of every learner.
