Great Oaks Charter School – Wilmington

About Great Oaks Charter Schools
The mission of the Great Oaks Foundation is to launch and support a network of charter schools that prepare students for college success through high-dosage tutoring. By design, our schools contribute to the vitality of the urban neighborhoods where they are located by attracting and creating social, human and investment capital.
What sets Great Oaks schools apart from other college preparatory charters is our high-dosage tutoring model; the Great Oaks Tutor Corps is a selective cadre of recent college graduates who deliver at least two hours of individualized instruction to every student every day. This academic model was inspired by the Match School of Boston, which has a proven track record of success in preparing students for college success using the Tutor Corps model.

The Great Oaks Foundation has successfully replicated this model in Newark, NJ and New York, NY, Bridgeport, CT and Wilmington, DE.

We are seeking hard-working, tenacious people who share the belief that all students deserve a high-quality education.
