Community Charter School of Cambridge (CCSC) is a public charter school that serves students in grades 6-12. Focusing on post-secondary success for all students, CCSC combines high academic and behavioral standards with an environment of unconditional affection, acceptance, and belonging in which all students can thrive. CCSC seeks dedicated, outstanding, and innovative faculty and staff interested in joining our exceptionally diverse and talented team (49% faculty of color, 57% administrators of color for the 2018-2019 school year). Educators will build upon our rigorous academic program and strong school culture. The school’s commitment to diversity and social justice is reflected in our daily practices, policies, and systems. Professional development is team-based and includes an extensive focus on race and equity.
I came back to teach at CCSC to reciprocate what was done for me. I not only wanted to provide students with the opportunity to grow academically, but to grow in terms of their character as well. [...] I wanted to provide students with the same guidance, support, and love that I had.

Community Charter School of Cambridge is a mouthful to say when asked where I work, but I always say the full name. For me, our name defines this place. We are community. A community of learners who engage, struggle, question, and reflect. A community of young adults, learning to live, sustained by the people of this place. A community of adults who care, create, and engage in this work together. Community is why I’m here.
- Mandy Henry, Humanities Teacher
I know I am exactly where I am supposed to be. Driven by a purpose. Coming home to CCSC and serving alongside the same trusted adults that invested in me is a dream come true. My goal was to be a relatable teacher. I am so proud of how diverse and wonderful our team is at CCSC. I love being a source of inspiration for my community.
- Rachel Jean-Louis, Mathematics Teacher and New Teacher Coach, CCSC Class of 2009
I love working at CCSC because it is a small organization fiercely dedicated to advancing equity in education. Here, I get to work with a unique group of talented individuals who have embraced me for who I am: a male, Muslim, immigrant. Around our campus, I see the love I have received from our community extended to children from all types of background, multiple times a day. Each day we unapologetically hold our children to extremely high standards, provide commensurate supports, and push them to strive to become their very best selves. And our kids give us back so much too.
- Ali Nomani, High School Principal
We strive to hold ourselves to a shared standard of leaving a place better than we found it - inspiring the students and adults to be their best selves in the classroom, on the field, and in their communities.
- Fay Alexander, Humanities Teacher
CCSC offers professional development that is focused on the most important aspects of our work - high quality instruction, school culture, culturally responsive practices, and practice in the myriad of systems that support our work. Professional development is rich, varied, and highly collaborative.
