REACH Summer Biology Teacher
Why teach for REACH this summer?
Come be a part of a passionate team of educators working to help change students’ and families’ lives! REACH, through a transformative middle school program, empowers high-achieving young men from underserved communities as Catholic leaders committed to faith, scholarship, and service. A summer and Saturday access program run through Regis High School, REACH serves students whose families demonstrate significant financial need. REACH currently serves 147 students from the 6th to 8th grade, with the ultimate aim of placing each student in a Catholic high school with a scholarship or financial aid. In keeping with the 450-year old Jesuit educational tradition that honors cura personalis, REACH serves its students and alumni by caring for their intellectual, spiritual, emotional, and social development.
