Our schools embrace the idea that ALL students can learn. At RCA, we measure success by the number of students who will leave us ready to achieve their dreams in college and beyond. First and foremost, we are searching for educators with a strong mission fit and tight alignment to our belief that all students — regardless of life circumstances– can and will succeed. We seek educators and staff who have the motivation, drive, compassion and commitment to ensure that all students reach their full potential.

At RCA, we offer teachers:
RCA offers teaching fellowships that provide new teachers with the professional development, leadership and classroom experience they need before leading a classroom of their own. The Teaching Fellow position allows new teachers to gain a first-hand experience from a successful, senior teacher in a high functioning classroom. In this environment, Teaching Fellows learn proven strategies to assist the educator in the development of their own highly functioning learning environment in the future.
Teachers are the most important in-school factor contributing to student achievement. We believe that great instruction results from innovation and collaboration, and is continuously improved by an ongoing dialogue and feedback exchange between the teacher and instructional leader. When something works, we celebrate it and share it!
At RCA, we have a growth mindset and believe that not only are our students on their own journey to learn and grow, but that all of the adults in the building are as well. Continuous learning is one of RCA core values and we believe there is always room to learn, grow and improve at each stage of your teaching career. We know that great teachers have the biggest impact on student achievement in our schools. That’s why we provide our teachers with rich opportunities to continue learning, leading and growing as professionals.
We acknowledge that teachers do a significant amount of work outside the classroom walls with parents, fellow teachers and leaders. We do everything we can to maximize time, resources and support so that our teachers spend more time teaching and less time doing paperwork.
Our vision is to prove what is possible for all students in South Carolina and to fundamentally alter expectations for educators and students working in schools that serve under-resourced communities. Our focus is on schools because we believe that educational opportunity is the gateway for economic and personal achievement. Every member of our team embraces this vision and understands their role in achieving our goals.
Our plan is designed to help you plan for your retirement, no matter what stage you are in your career. All employees are eligible to participate in the plan starting at their date of hire. Renaissance Collegiate Academy will match fifty percent of the first six percent of your eligible compensation. The match is paid to participant’s accounts on an annual basis.
At RCA, we offer competitive salaries based on degree, years of experience and RESULTS. Unlike many districts, we have designed a compensation plan that is flexible and rewards great performance. High performing teachers and staff have the opportunity to advance through our compensation levels much more quickly than the traditional step increase model allows.
