Principal, Hartford Magnet Trinity College Academy (Grades 6-12)
Hartford Public Schools is pleased to announce the search for Principal of the Hartford Magnet Trinity College Academy (HMTCA). HPS is seeking a leader with a passion for educating children, a commitment to closing achievement gaps, and an ability to maximize learning for all students. Hartford Public Schools invites applications from knowledgeable and innovative professionals who are experienced in urban education and understand the range of academic, social, and emotional needs of students.

Successful applicants will also have demonstrated experience managing talent, overseeing organizational systems, and engaging families and community partners for equity and excellence.

HMTCA boasts a demanding program of studies and a culture of high expectations. This program is built on a rigorous academic foundation that emphasizes two complementary disciplines: science and the arts, blending these themes with the Early College model. This thematic approach to learning allows students to engage in theater, dance, vocal/instrumental music, visual arts, writing and literature workshops, as well as inquiry-based science courses. HMTCA's Early College model offers students the opportunity to engage in coursework on the Trinity College campus, working in partnership with professors, teachers, and students. At HMTCA, we attempt to transcend traditional subject-centered boundaries in order to encourage students' broader thinking and promote their enduring understanding. Students make authentic connections among the disciplines. Learning goals are clear and instructional practices and activities honor differences in students' learning styles. Our challenging curriculum and a culture of high expectations provide an environment in which all of our students may excel, academically and socially.
