As We Grow, You Grow

Our employees are our most valuable asset in furthering our mission of College for All children.

Generous benefits and compensation, along with a commitment to providing every employee resources and support, makes IDEA a special place to work.

See below for an overview of our benefits or download details of the benefits package we offer for Texas, Louisiana, Florida and IDEA-U.

Competitive Compensation

At IDEA, we realize compensation is an important factor to staff members and we strive to make sure our strategies around compensation not only align to our organization goals but are also effective in rewarding and recognizing the hard work of our staff.

Here are the teacher pay scales by region:
Austin | Baton Rouge | El Paso | Greater Houston | New Orleans | Permian Basin | Rio Grande Valley | San Antonio | Tarrant County 

Time Off and Paid Leave

IDEA employees enjoy generous paid time off and family leave benefits that enable personal and professional balance and flexibility. 

Medical, Dental, Vision

IDEA employees are offered a range of health insurance plans and coverage options. IDEA contributes monthly to employee medical insurance coverage that you elect and goes into effect on your first day of work.

Supplemental Health Benefits

As needed, IDEA employees may contribute to an array of supplemental health benefits.

Retirement Planning

The key to enjoying your retirement is to begin contributing to your retirement savings plan now and continue to contribute on a regular basis. IDEA employees are provided multiple options to maximize future retirement plans.

Professional Growth and Development

An important part of the IDEA benefits package is financial support that allows for pre-tax savings on some of the most burdensome life expenses, as well as discounts at the places our employees often shop.

A commitment to your growth


We are here to support you on your path to success whether you would like to continue your journey at your starting role or move to another. There are opportunities to grow as we grow, like transferring to a new campus or to a new IDEA region.


We have systems in place that ensure you succeed in your new role, including comprehensive trainings that build your arsenal of skills to keep you feeling prepared and excited about your work. From instructional to operational, our trainings walk you through different scenarios, giving you the tools you need to handle any situation confidently.


Training doesn’t stop once you are hired, as each day brings a new set of learning experiences.

You’ll also have the opportunity to provide your managers with feedback to reinforce your team effectiveness.
