We work  to recruit, train, and retain excellent teachers and staff who are mission-aligned, believe in our students’ limitless potential, and are committed to growing their craft in service of our students' future.


We believe in our students’ limitless potential and that their past does not dictate their future. We believe that each and every one of our students must read, think, and discuss critically. We believe in providing an academic curriculum that prepares all our students to access and succeed in college. We believe in social-emotional learning, character development, and self advocacy. If you believe this, we want you.

"I wanted to work in a school where I was valued and felt like a member of a family. At LACS, I found that family, as well as a school that's invested in my growth, both personally and professionally. The team at Libertas has helped me to refine and hone my teaching skills and ensures that I show up as my best self every day. Because I can show up authentically, I can push the kids to show up as their best authentic selves as well. When teachers win, the students and the school community as a whole are stronger for it. I win every day at Libertas.

“I came on as a teacher, within the first year I grew into the position of a grade level chair, 2 years after that I’ve been moved up to the Asst. Dean Position so the growth every year both financially and in has been evident been supported in professional development opportunities - they’ve hunted situations for me and opportunities outside of our charter.”

“It’s a family - it’s a place where we have family members that work here because everyone knows that we’re all rowing in the same direction. As an adult, when you’re looking for stability in life you want that, you want to know that you’re part of a team that is actually wanting to see you succeed…”

-Mr. Barone, 8th Grade Science Teacher

Why Western Mass?

Culture and History. Springfield and Western Massachusetts are diverse and growing regions. We are comprised of people who identify across all backgrounds including but not limited to race, ethnicity, class, sexual orientation, religion, and gender. We are inclusive and welcoming; we believe in our city’s history and the people who help build it and are welcoming to newcomers who want to be a part of our community.

Urban culture and natural scenery. Pioneer Valley has an abundance to offer during the days, nights, and weekends. Like the outdoors, hike, biking, and skiing - there are countless trails and options in the Northampton, South Hadley, and Amherst areas and Vermont is just an hour away. If you’re looking for a more urban scene, downtown Springfield offers various restaurants, bars, the MGM casino, and continues to grow.

Central Location. In addition to all the sights Springfield has to offer, it is easily accessible to all of New England - the Berkshires are one hour West, Vermont is one hour North, Boston is 1.5 hours East, and New York City is just 2.5 - 3 hours South. If you’re up for a short road trip, you can travel to New Hampshire or Maine in 3-4 hours to see the trees changing in the Fall and if you head four hours south, you’ll quickly find yourself in Philadelphia, PA.
