The Fairfax Collegiate Summer Program is Northern Virginia's largest summer enrichment program for elementary and middle school students.
We provide engaging and informative two-week summer classes in subjects including writing, mathematics, science, test preparation, public speaking, engineering, robotics, minecraft, programming, art & design, and filmmaking.
We were founded in 1993 and operate at twelve locations across Northern Virginia. Each summer we work with approximately 4,000 students.
The TA Program is Fairfax Collegiate's paid summer teaching opportunity for rising high-school seniors and college freshman. TAs work as assistant instructors in the Fairfax Collegiate Summer Program.
TAs are responsible for supervising students, providing individual instruction under the guidance of instructors, performing administrative tasks, and grading student work.
Many of our TAs go on to become instructors for Fairfax Collegiate in future summers; this position provides added responsibility and experience as well as an increase in pay. Former instructors use the teaching experience gained from working for Fairfax Collegiate in a variety of professions.
For our TA Program, we are looking for individuals who:
Fairfax Collegiate was a great way to refine my teaching skills. Watching an eighth grader decode a logic problem or a fourth grader master fraction concepts beats sitting at a desk any day!
I had a fun and rewarding summer teaching at Fairfax Collegiate. The children amazed me with their creativity.
The program gave me great support and a solid curriculum. It is far more than a "summer job" in that it offers important professional growth for teachers.
I had the opportunity to work with extraordinary colleagues, some of whom became close friends. Also, it was great fun to teach kids every day!
