Teacher Academy

The impact a teacher can have on someone’s life is profound. Teachers teach more than subject matter; they teach lifelong lessons. If you are looking for a satisfying career, teaching might be for you.  Teacher Academy is intended for college bound students interested in any career related to teaching or other school support services.  Students will be exposed to a variety of current topics in education to give a realistic understanding of teaching as a career. Academy students will receive OSHA Safety and First-Aid Certifications.  Teacher Academy is an excellent choice for Early College students and will transition to ACC teacher education courses.
