Employment and Volunteers

StarShine Academy is a K-12 Charter School network recognized as a transformative innovator in education. We are dedicated to revamping education and shaping teaching techniques, so that each student is given the best opportunity to learn anything. At StarShine we do not just build great students, we build great people. StarShine prepares each child for success using a combination of outstanding teaching, compassion, understanding and the ability to recognize and support the individual needs and desires of each student. At StarShine we believe that Self-Empowerment along with Self-Discipline are essential to success. "Learn how to love to learn at StarShine," includes adults and children.

StarShine has been nationally and internationally accredited, and honored by the United Nations as a school for peace.  This year, even more exciting things are happening as StarShine Academy again opens its newest facility for another year, a "green" EcoVillage at 3535 East McDowell Road in Phoenix, Arizona 85008.

StarShine Academy employs highly qualified and energetic Principals, elementary, middle and high school teachers, and volunteers. Teachers at StarShine Academy are called "Leaders of Learning" and are passionate individuals who are dedicated to helping every child find their talent to grow into a peaceful, productive, and successful person, while at the same time igniting each student’s passion to learn.  

We'll have a fill-in-the-blanks form up soon, but for now, please email us at jobs@starshine.us.  Let us know how you can help StarShine live up to its principles.
