Employer Description
 

Harlem Village Academies is widely recognized as a national leader in the education reform movement.  Its growing network of public charter schools are transforming the lives of children in <!--?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" /--><!--?xml:namespace prefix = st1 /--><st1:place w:st="on">Harlem</st1:place> by providing them with an excellent education.  Led by a team of passionate social entrepreneurs, Harlem Village Academies has developed and effectively executed on a clear, focused strategy: hire talented and passionate teachers, provide them with autonomy and extensive professional support, and hold them accountable for results.  HVA sets high standards for students’ academic performance and personal conduct; intervenes with love and rigor when a child is off-track; and engenders in students a love of learning, a spirit of community, and dedication to academic and behavioral excellence.  <!--?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /--><!--?xml:namespace prefix = o /--><o:p></o:p>

The results have been extraordinary, and Harlem Village Academies has achieved national prominence as one of the highest performing urban schools in the country.  Students enter the academies several years below grade-level, many with a history of poor behavior.  Yet after a few years with the school they make remarkable gains. <o:p></o:p>
