About Us

The mission of the Great Oaks Legacy Charter School is to prepare its students to succeed in college. We do this by instilling in students the respect, integrity, self-discipline, and excellence necessary to be successful in college and to pursue a career of their choice. We strongly believe that all students can succeed in an atmosphere of high expectations and caring relationships where they receive considerable individual attention. What sets GO schools apart from other college preparatory charters is a 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.

Great Oaks Legacy was founded with the explicit mission to change the dismal odds that a low-income minority student in Newark currently has of ever obtaining a college degree. Our mission is to prepare students to succeed in college.

Great Oaks Legacy is a No Excuses school with high standards, a rigorous college-prep curriculum, small cohorts of students, individualized tutoring and personal support and care for each student.

Applicants who meet the requirements above, must submit resume, cover letter, and transcripts by January 7th, 2019.
