Haas Hall Academy is seeking faculty and staff at each of our campuses in Northwest Arkansas. Haas Hall Academy provides an exceptional, highly competitive compensation package as well as an excellent benefits package.

Haas Hall Academy serves the educational needs of Northwest Arkansas scholars from a four-county area, representing a wide range of socio-economic and ethnic backgrounds. Although Arkansas’s economy is largely driven by agriculture, the Northwest Arkansas region is the headquarters of Tyson Foods (one of the largest meat-producing companies in the world), J.B. Hunt (one of the country’s largest transportation companies), and Walmart (a global leader in retail). The local corporate offices of over 1,200 Walmart vendors bring highly educated employees of companies like Coca-Cola, Dell, General Mills, Kellogg’s, Pfizer, PepsiCo, and Procter & Gamble to the area.
The 2012 US Census estimates the population of the Fayetteville-Springdale-Rogers Metropolitan Area to be over 480,000, and the current growth rate ranges from 2percent to 4 percent per year.
Haas Hall Academy is a small, comprehensive institution promoting an accelerated college preparatory curriculum and serving scholars in grades 7 through 12. Haas Hall Academy is the state’s only open-enrollment charter high school focusing on rigor and high academic standards. Haas Hall Academy is accredited by AdvancED and the Arkansas Department of Education. Haas Hall Academy is the #1 ranked public high school in Arkansas for six consecutive years according to U.S. News & World Report. Haas Hall Academy is ranked the 19th best public high school in the nation according to Newsweek magazine.
As a microcosm of a university, Haas Hall Academy’s academic schedule is based on a semester block system mirroring the higher educational experience. All scholars are required to attend four 90 minute blocks per day, five days a week. Enrolling in four credits in the fall and four in the spring, scholars complete an entire calendar year of each course in only one semester. Classes at Haas Hall Academy are mixed age, and scholars are placed into classes based on their achievement rather than their grade level. A minimum of 22 credits are required to graduate in Arkansas, but most Haas Hall Scholars will graduate with over 32 credits.
All scholars at Haas Hall Academy experience an accelerated curriculum that goes into greater depth than is normally found in similar high school courses. Additionally, AP® classes are available to all scholars.
Haas Hall Academy focuses on academics to ensure that 100 percent of scholars are accepted into college. Scholars are provided with unparalleled hands-on instruction with an accelerated college preparatory focus on STEAM: science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics. Scholars regularly leave campus with their instructors, gaining real-life experience and becoming involved in the larger community.
