Pre-Residency Program A handful of college credits is all it takes to start your journey toward leading a classroom. In our Pre-Residency program, you’ll build upon your existing base of college credits to finish your Bachelor’s degree - tuition-free. We partner with Grand Valley State University’s LEADS program which provides academic advising to help you find the shortest path to graduation. While completing your coursework, if not already employed in one of our partner schools, you’ll be placed in a paid, working role in a partner school where you’ll begin to build relationships and make an impact. Upon completion of your degree, you’ll move into our full Residency program. Applications open through November 1st!
Residency Program Beginning in May 2024, combine your passion for our community with your existing Bachelor’s or advanced degree - in any field - to make a difference in the lives of students with our Residency program. Head back to school for just one year of teaching-specific coursework while working alongside a mentor teacher in a classroom. Finish the year with a teaching certificate, plus receive connections and support to help you secure a full-time teaching role for the next fall.
