Employment Opportunities at Phelps
The faculty and staff at Phelps are motivated by working with young people to instill the love of learning not only in their respective fields but also in the broader community. Phelps strives to assist all students in finding success in and out of the classroom. There is an Academic Support Program (ASP) designed for students who need more support with reading, writing, math, and study skills. ASP can support students with mild learning difference. Phelps also strives to create and foster an equitable and inclusive learning environment that leans into diverse perspectives to create a supportive environment for all to learn. Candidates should demonstrate a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts that develop a community where all can thrive.
