Jay Pritzker Academy to Continue High Standards for Staff and Students

The Jay Pritzker Academy has been educating youths in the Siem Reap area of Cambodia since 2006. The Academy was founded based on the principles and curriculum of the highly successful Providence St. Mel school in Chicago, Illinois.

Jay Pritzker Academy's insight:

Jay Pritzker Academy is proud to announce that it will continue to uphold the highest of educational standards for its students and staff in Siem Reap, Cambodia. The school bases its curriculum and teaching on the example of the Providence St. Mel School in Chicago, Illinois, the base used for the international Asian school. This school has come from a broken and struggling institution to a pillar of urban education. Its students excel in scores and many continue their education at some of the countries’ most prestigious schools, going on to make their roots in Chicago proud with their many accomplished and diverse academic achievements and pursuits.

For the Jay Pritzker Academy, the choice was clear to follow Providence as a role model. The Siem Reap location in Cambodia is one facing similar troubles as Chicago was in the late 1960s and 1970s. Through a concerted and organized effort, the Jay Pritzker Academy has been able to improve the education of the area immensely and is continuing to see dramatic positive results each year.

One of the primary factors involved in helping the school uphold its high standards for staff and students is the fact that Jeanette DiBella serves as the Jay Pritzker Academy's Chef Educational Officer. She is also currently serves as the principal of Providence St. Mel School.

By adopting and modifying the Providence model to fit the needs of Cambodian students, Jeanette and the staff at the Jay Pritzker Academy know that they will continue to cultivate success. Keeping standards and expectations high is an important part of this success. With these standards and the Providence model, Jay Pritzker Academy plans to send its graduates to some of the world's best schools.

Jay Pritzker Academy Announces Teaching Openings

Teaching overseas is a challenge and a wonderful experience for teachers. The Jay Pritzker Academy regularly hires teachers to work overseas at the Academy in Cambodia.

Jay Pritzker Academy's insight:

The Jay Pritzker Academy is pleased to announce a variety of openings at its pre-kindergarten through 12th grade school in Siem Reap, Cambodia. The school has been providing children in one of the poorest areas of Cambodia with a quality education since 2006, and has continuously built upon its foundation of providing academic excellence to the local Asian community for the past 7 years.

Founded by Daniel and Karen Pritzker, the school is based on some of the highest standards in education. Much of the motivation in opening the school and much of the inspiration behind how the school operates was pulled from the successes at the Providence St. Mel School in Chicago, Illinois.

Teachers at the Jay Pritzker Academy follow a curriculum and a school structure very similar to the curriculum utilized at Providence St. Mel School. Both schools are seeing a great deal of success for their students.

At the Jay Pritzker Academy, there are a few positions currently posted which need to be filled by talented teachers looking to explore the world and benefit children. Summer school teachers are needed to fill a variety of roles at the campus for the entirety of the summer.
