JOB DESCRIPTION:

“Academic Excellence Through the Arts”

This is our motto at Tindley Genesis Academy (TGA) where we believe that academic excellence can be achieved at its fullest potential with and through the music and the arts.

We believe it’s critical for elementary school students to begin preparing for rigorous middle school, high school and college opportunities at a young age. That’s why our students participate in a challenging and interactive curriculum based on the same accelerated model used at the Tindley high school and middle schools. Tindley Genesis also provides exceptional instruction in music and infuses performing arts skills into the general education setting.

Ultimately, our students will possess the confidence, academic ability and resiliency to overcome obstacles on their journey toward academic and professional success.

The key to getting our students started on this journey is a stellar ensemble of teachers who not only expect excellence, but also ensure that all of their actions promote the excellence for which they strive.
