The Teaching Academy offers high school courses for students to explore their interests in becoming educator-activists. Our Le Count-Catto Curriculum, which is based in Black pedagogy and historical frameworks, helps students make the connection between teaching and activism.
All Teaching Academy students are eligible for the Center’s Black Teacher Pipeline Fellowship that provides academic support, professional coaching, college scholarships and retention bonuses.
Teaching Academy after-school courses can be structured for up to five days a week for all four years of high school. We also offer college credits through dual enrollment so that students can graduate high school with an associate’s degree in education and certification as an educational paraprofessional.
