Ina A. Colen Academy (IACA) is a newly approved public charter school located in Ocala, Florida. The school is located in Calesa, a planned community under development. The school will open its brand new, state-of-the-art school doors in August 2022 with approximately 200 students in Kindergarten through grade six. The school will gradually grow its enrollment reaching approximately 1,000 students in Kindergarten through grade eight by the sixth year of operation. We are seeking a dynamic, experienced and highly successful principal.

The founders engaged Collaborative Educational Network, Inc. (CEN) to help articulate their vision and to assist with opening and provide ongoing support to the charter school. The principal will work closely with CEN, the IACA Governing Board, and The Colen Family Charitable Trust, the school’s supporting foundation, to integrate IACA into the neighboring communities.

This is a unique opportunity to plan and develop during the pre-opening period and to then launch and lead during the 2020-21 school year.
