Director of Academics, Journey Academy
Director of Academics,
TLC Child and Family Services, home to Journey Academy, is a leading agency in Northern California where different is beautiful.
Journey Academy is a non-public high school located in Sebastopol, California, on a 5-acre campus. Our dedicated team works with vulnerable teens who are bright and capable but struggling to find their place in the world. Since 1975, our goal has been to help our students expand their capacities to cope in the real world, to grow academically, and to find confidence in the unique expression of who they are. Therefore, our classes have no more than 12 students allowing for individualized instruction and highly personal interactions.
TLC’s additional thriving programs offer a continuum of evidence-based treatment and relationship-focused care to youth and families. We provide comprehensive quality mental health services, foster care, and adoption services, residential treatment, special education services, and transition age youth housing. Our team is enthusiastic and dedicated to providing healthy, healing environments and experiences for foster and other youth and their families, in which their differences are leveraged, valued and celebrated.
Position Summary- Director of Academics
The Director of Academics serves as the educational and instructional leader, responsible for managing the policies, regulations, and procedures to ensure that all students are supervised in a safe and upbeat learning environment that meets the approved curriculum and mission of the school. Yet, this isn’t your average director of academics position.
This position allows room for creativity and is central to culture-setting and student experience. In Journey Academy’s small school setting, the Director of Academics has the opportunity to interact with students, parents, and teachers daily and takes an active role in determining student success.
Achieving academic excellence requires collaboration to direct and support all members of the school staff and to engage effectively with agency staff, community partners, and parents. Inherent in the position are the responsibilities for scheduling, curriculum development, extra curricular activities, personnel management, emergency procedures, and facility operations.
TLC is an equal opportunity employer. We celebrate diversity and strive to create a workforce that is reflective of the ethnic and cultural makeup of our community.
