Teacher Compensation

Nexus Academy educator salaries are not built from a step scale. Salaries are calculated with a base compensation competitive to the area you live in with additional increases given based on degrees, years of experience and certifications! Nexus Academy believes in rewarding employees for their hard work and commitment to our goal—providing a top-notch education to our students. Employees are eligible for annual performance and salary reviews and may be eligible to participate in our performance-based bonus program.

Performance-based Approach

Pay increases are not found on a set step scale!  Our approach includes:

  • Annual Reviews
  • Performance-based bonus plan
  • Career Ladder opportunities

A CE teacher's salary increase is not based solely on years of experience and education; our teachers are compensated for their hard-work and dedication to the families of Connections Education.

Still not convinced the performance-based model beats the step scale?

Connect with a teacher about our performance based system and what it’s like to teach in a cutting edge virtual K-12 school!
