Now, HAPA aims to become one of the very best schools – without qualification– in Wisconsin, so that students gain the skills and values necessary to succeed in life and see their immigrant parents’ and grandparents’ dreams come to fruition. 

Our academic, administrative and operational teams play critical roles in the future trajectory of HAPA and its scholars, helping all of us live our promise to build a community of peace builders and lifelong learners who are transforming lives and leading the way out of poverty into a prosperous life of service.

Open Positions

We currently are recruiting for the following open positions. Please send your resume and cover letter to [email protected] and we will be back in touch. We are always happy to hear from prospective candidates, even if a current position does not meet your skill set! We will keep your resume on hand for future opportunities.

HAPA is entering its 19th academic year with an ambitious new strategic effort to expand the opportunities our scholars need to thrive in college and beyond. This long-term effort will require more financial resources than Charter School funding allows. As with all high-impact non-profit organizations, HAPA seeks to thrive in a vibrant Culture of Philanthropy and effective fundraising and therefore is launching a search for a Director of Community Engagement.

The new Director of Community Engagement will have a key role in creating and developing the operational functions of the new Community Engagement Office, and be a member of HAPA’s Leadership Team, which includes the Chief Academic Officer, Chief Financial Officer, and Chief of Staff. The Director will also be a key collaborator with an outstanding Board of Directors.

Interested candidates should send a cover letter, resume, and 3 signed letters of recommendation to Mai Shoua Xiong, Chief of Staff ([email protected]).

 A brief update about HAPA: the school currently serves 1,830 K4-12 scholars in a community of PeaceBuilders and life-long learners, transforming lives and leading the way out of poverty into a prosperous life of service.

HAPA’s success to date is extraordinary: Data from the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction shows that despite 90% of students qualifying as economically disadvantaged, HAPA’s academic performance, when compared to all schools in Wisconsin, exceeds expectations. Another measure of achievement: 97% of the 65 members of our 2022 Senior Class are enrolled in post-secondary education, with 14 graduates attending UW-Milwaukee, 8 attending UW-Madison, and others enrolled at Marquette, MSOE, NYU, and Stanford.
