  • Welcome to Empowerment Academy!

    We are a high-performing charter school located in Jersey City, NJ -- an exciting, culturally vibrant city immediately across the Hudson River from lower Manhattan. At many truly excellent schools, even the most committed teachers can feel burned out after a few years. At our schools, however, we endeavor to mesh the high expectations culture and successful classroom management practices of America’s top-performing charter school operators with a proven education program and with teacher supports that are designed to avoid teacher burnout, so educators can remain charged and enthusiastic throughout an entire career. If you are an experienced urban teacher with excellent classroom management skills, if you have a record of helping inner-city children beat the odds and achieve to their highest potential, if you love the sense of purpose and accomplishment one receives from this extremely meaningful work – but you also want an opportunity to spend time with your own children and to have a life outside of school – then we might be for you.
