We are helping rebuild Detroit.

Our teachers are helping rebuild one of America’s great cities from the classroom up. They bring their skill, passion, and dedication to help students overcome big obstacles to create a brighter future—for themselves and for their city.

As a turnaround district, EAA is breathing new life into struggling schools and communities throughout Detroit. We are committed to ensuring that all of Detroit’s students get the education they need to succeed in college and beyond.


Make a difference for the students who need you most.

We serve many of Detroit’s oldest neighborhoods, communities that have been hit hard by economic downturn. Our students, many of whom live in circumstances of poverty, face big challenges both inside the classroom and out. All of them deserve an education that prepares them for success in college or a career—and great teaching is the key. From your first day, you’ll have an opportunity to change the lives of students who have too often been denied the great education they deserve.

More than a cause, it’s a career.

Changing students’ lives is a rewarding cause, but it should also be a rewarding career. Beyond giving teachers the support they need and the recognition they deserve for excelling in the city’s most important job, teachers receive:

Competitive salaries: The EAA offers accredited teachers one of the highest starting salaries of any district in the country. And we pay great teachers what they’re worth, by offering substantial bonuses to those who help their students succeed.

Career advancement: As you build a track record of success in our schools, you’ll have opportunities to reach more students, earn more money, and grow professionally by taking on roles as a model lead, lead, and master teacher—and eventually as an assistant principal or principal. The EAA offers its most effective educators the training needed to take on leadership roles throughout the district.

Autonomy: EAA schools nurture a culture of respect and professionalism, empowering teachers and school leaders to work together to make important decisions about what happens in their schools and ensure that they’re meeting the unique needs of their community.

Support: Teachers in every school have access to the resources and tools they need to prepare students for college and career success.
