JOIN OUR BLUE CHIP TEAM
Intrepid College Prep hires and trains Blue Chip teacher talent from all across the country because numerous educational studies have demonstrated that teacher quality is the primary factor in student achievement – more so than class size, socioeconomic status, or prior academic record.
Most importantly, Blue Chip Teachers share the fundamental belief that all students, regardless of the circumstances into which they are born, deserve and must receive a high-quality college preparatory education that enables them to achieve in college, career and life. Blue Chip Teachers believe in and model our core PRIDE values (Professionalism, Rigor, Initiative, Discipline and Endurance). Blue Chip Teachers do “whatever it takes” to put 100% of our students on the path to top colleges.
WHY “BLUE CHIP”
The legend goes that blue chip stocks are so named for the highest value chips used in the game of poker. Blue chip stocks are resilient companies – the best of the best – with solid and long-term reputations. Much like “blue chip stocks,” our Blue Chip Faculty has a much deserved reputation for quality, consistency, and student achievement on an absolute and value-added scale.
BLUE CHIP TRAINING
Everyone at Intrepid is supported professionally with live and video coaching and develops rapidly through a personalized professional development program.
