The Bard Early College Academy @ UAMA is seeking educators passionate about their fields of study and committed to advancing equity through rigorous curricula made accessible to high school students with varied levels of academic preparation. Successful applicants must be committed to teaching classes through a competency-based interdisciplinary model that prepares students for our early college program in 11th and 12th grade.

In addition, candidates will be expected to participate fully in the life of the school, including professional development rooted in exploring historic/systemic inequalities in our society, especially as they are related to K-12 education; interdisciplinary curriculum planning; student advising; club and extracurricular involvement, and committee service. All candidates must have or be enrolled in a program working towards a New York State Teaching License; high school teaching experience, and/or experience working with high school-age students is desirable.

We are seeking teachers in the following subjects:

  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • History
  • The Arts
  • Special Education.

The Bard Early College Academy @ UAMA is an early college partnership that establishes a satellite campus of the Bard Early College at the Urban Assembly School of Music and Art. The early college partnership enables students in 11th and 12th grade to enroll as part-time undergraduate students at Bard College, where they can earn up to sixteen tuition-free college credits concurrently with their high school studies. All classes take place at UAMA.

The Bard Early College Academy @ UAMA is committed to equity and inclusion and is an unscreened NYCDOE school with no entrance exam or audition process, open to all New York City students who apply.

Please send all inquiries to our Hiring Committee at; hiring@uamusicandart.org
