Company: Fusion Academy
Location: Leesburg
Posted on: September 12, 2020

Job Description:

About the Organization Fusion Academy is a revolutionary alternative, accredited private school for grades 6-12 that offers a fully individualized classroom: one student, one teacher. As the nationwide leader in one to one schooling, Fusion Academy has campuses throughout the country.

Every student at Fusion is unique - some students are accelerated learners; some need flexible scheduling; and others have special learning needs due to attention challenges, learning differences, or social and emotional difficulties. No matter why students come to Fusion, our model is simple - through compassion and acceptance, Fusion students learn on their terms, on their schedule, and in their learning style.

Our model is a unique academic program offering services year-round on a rolling admissions basis. Our environment is highly personal and socially inclusive. Equal emphasis is placed on students' emotional well-being as it is on academic achievements. In addition to full time enrollment, students at Fusion Academy may take a class for credit or enroll in our tutoring/mentoring program.

The Fusion culture offers a special place to work, teach, and learn. Fusionites are a special brand of educators--they are creative, passionate, embrace change, and have fun! They communicate honestly and with compassion to both students and colleagues. People join the Fusion family for more than just a paycheck; they seek to work with peers who share these values. And because Fusion is growing rapidly, we offer considerable opportunity for career advancement throughout the country.

Location Loudoun

Description What if you could lead a school where every classroom is just one student and just one teacher?

Position Summary

The Head of School serves as the leader and director of the Fusion Academy campus. The HOS will assist with the school start-up as necessary, ongoing activities and student recruitment, and is directly responsible and accountable for ensuring the fulfillment of educational goals and outcomes of the school. We are seeking positive, confident, entrepreneurial, and energetic self-starters to lead this Fusion Academy location.

You're most likely a fit if:

You thrive in an entrepreneurial environment where 'everything is possible' but resources can sometimes be scarce.

You're passionate about developing people and feel successful when your team drives results.

Compassion and communication are at the heart of your style.

Your values align with ours: Excellence, Passion, Innovation, and Courage.

We also believe in: " It's That Important! " We understand that what we do has a tremendous impact on students. We cannot wait. We cannot settle. We cannot quit. It's that important!

This probably isn't for you if:

You are uncomfortable being accountable for quantitative results.

You have little to no experience managing or motivating a high EQ team.

You have little to no experience working in a highly relational environment where inspiration, relationships, and persuasion are more important than the hard sell.

You struggle to synthesize information into a coherent strategy and plan.

You aren't passionate about the mission, issues, people, or ideas that support our mission.
