Program length

One year of half-day study for high school seniors

This recent addition to our New Vision lineup gives students the opportunity to prepare for a career in the fields of K-12 education.

Students study educational theories to prepare them for planning, creating and reviewing instruction.

Clinical experiences and other hands-on activities introduce students to various educational careers, from administration to social work.

Because students obtain college credits during their high school years in this program, it allows them the opportunity to have room in their schedule for paid substituting at local schools during their college career. Not only does this give students crucial real-world experience, it also helps districts manage the substitute teacher shortage.
