Art of Problem Solving (AoPS) develops educational opportunities for many of the most eager math students in the world. We have trained tens of thousands of the country's top math students for over 16 years through our textbook series and our online school. In 2016 we launched AoPS Academy, a family of after-school learning centers for strong math and language arts students in grades 2-12. 

We currently have 10 AoPS Academies across the United States and have an immediate opening for a new Campus or Associate Director to join our Princeton, New Jersey Academy.  We are seeking motivated math educators to lead our Academy and inspire the next generation of intellectual leaders. 

About the Position
AoPS Academy Campus Directors and Associate Directors wear many different hats. This might be the right job for you if you understand what actors mean when they say, "I love acting, but what I really want to do is direct!" That's because you love teaching, but what you really want to do is run your own learning center. You're ready to do a bit of everything, including:

  • Teaching math classes on a weekly basis
  • Hiring, training, and managing teachers and other staff
  • Assisting with the logistical operations of running a campus
  • Meeting with current and prospective families
  • Responding to parent emails
  • Building community partnerships and connections
  • Attending outreach events

Differences between Campus Director and Associate Director
While Campus Directors and Associate Directors share many responsibilities, there are important differences between the two roles.

Campus Directors run the show. They have a wealth of teaching and leadership experience. They're responsible for hiring, training, and managing their staff. It's up to them to ensure that their campus is running smoothly. They can efficiently delegate responsibilities to their highly skilled team of employees. They're a confident and effective communicator, capable of building strong relationships with parents and community members.

Associate Directors
have many of the same strengths as a Campus Director but are perhaps still building on their management and leadership experience. To that end, they are eager to learn new things and assist in whatever tasks are needed. They're an expert in their subject area and have the pedagogical skills and instincts to not only teach outstanding lessons but also coach and collaborate with other teachers. 

Work Schedule
Since AoPS Academy is an after-school program, most of our classes and family meetings occur during the evenings and on weekends. As such, it's expected that Campus Directors and Associate Directors work a nontraditional schedule during the academic year. During the summer, Directors and Associate Directors typically shift to a more standard Monday to Friday work schedule.

This position includes a competitive salary, health insurance, dental insurance, a 401K retirement plan, and a raise structure based on campus performance.

This listing is for an immediate opening for a Campus or Associate Director at our Princeton, NJ location. We also have a few new planned campus openings on both the east and west coast which could accommodate an early summer start date. To apply for those new campus openings, please apply here:
