Building on Brilliant Teaching

Penn Charter understands the vital importance of adaptability and dexterity, and we encourage our faculty to teach for the future: to embrace creativity, collaboration, global partnerships, innovative curriculum, and technologies—all to prepare our graduates for tomorrow.

How much farther can we see?

We can see master teachers blazing modern trails toward enduring truths and timeless skills.

Penn Charter teachers perpetually innovate and evolve, supported by professional development funds, the Teaching & Learning Center, and our VITAL summer grants. Our faculty members shine as lifetime learners—forever reimagining and revitalizing teaching.

We can see how meaningful support for each faculty member exponentially enriches the learning experience for all students.

We attract and retain exemplary educators by offering competitive salary support and professional development opportunities to ensure the growth of great teachers. Ultimately, every investment Penn Charter makes in our teachers pays dividends to our students in the form of updated experiences, projects, and approaches.

We seek to raise more than $5 million to continue attracting the best educators in the country to the Penn Charter campus, and to support their continued professional growth once here. We build our challenging academic programs and vital character initiatives on the bedrock of great teaching; supporting our faculty members supports our every endeavor at Penn Charter.
