AT TULSA HONOR ACADEMY, WE ARE ON A MISSION TO EQUIP ALL SCHOLARS WITH THE ACADEMIC SKILLS, CONTENT KNOWLEDGE, AND ETHICAL CHARACTER REQUIRED FOR COLLEGE GRADUATION AND LIFE SUCCESS.
We believe all scholars, regardless of race, background, income or ability, can achieve at high levels. We work relentlessly to ensure 100% of scholars are on a path to go to and graduate from a college of their choice, beginning in the fifth grade.
When you join the THA Familia, you are joining a team with an unwavering commitment to ensuring scholars in our community have access to a high-quality, college preparatory education. One that is focused on developing successful college graduates who will become well-rounded, engaged individuals who will transform their communities.
Candidates must share our unshakeable belief that ALL scholars can achieve when given the opportunity. Sound like you?
At Tulsa Honor Academy, we believe the following to be true:
*Years of teaching experience include full-time lead Bachelor-level Teacher experience in an accredited K-12 school (public, private, or charter) for at least 8 consecutive months of a given school year. This may also include experience as an Assistant Principal, Dean, Principal, or similar certified-type position. THA recognizes up to 20 years of experience outside of THA.
^Tulsa Honor Academy values commitment to the teaching profession, as evidenced by certification. Certified means an Oklahoma State Teaching Certification in any area, valid through the end of the school year listed in the letter of agreement.
A Teacher with an earned master's or higher in K-12 education will receive a $1000 increase from their placement on the salary schedule. An earned master's or higher in any other area will result in a $500 increase. Increases are applied, effective July 1 or January 1, depending on the date earned. For the purposes of the increase, THA will recognize one additional degree above a bachelor's.
Tulsa Honor Academy values Teacher retention. Typically, Teachers at THA are initially placed on the scale then receive an annual increase the next year, rather than moving to the next step on the salary schedule. For the 2022-2023, the increase was 2.5% for Teachers employed with THA as a Teacher for the full year, and 1.25% for staff who were employed as a Teacher for at least half the year but less than the full year.
This salary scale was revised in 2023, with plans to revisit at least every 3 years.
