Future Educator: Interested in teaching as a possible career? The Future Educator Pathway is an innovative college prep program designed for students who have an interest in the field of education. Students will explore how people learn, how schools operate, and what it's like to be a teacher. Students learn through creative hands-on activities, guest speakers, field trips, classroom observations, research, and job shadowing. Throughout the year, students will work closely with a cooperating teacher in a grade level of their choice in a mini-student teaching experience.

Early Childhood Education: Students considering a career in early childhood education, child psychology, pediatric medicine, social work, or other child-related occupations are encouraged to enroll in the ECE program. Students enrolled in the program receive training in the classroom setting and in a licensed child care facility or school. The supervised placement provides the student with the opportunity to observe children, interact using developmentally appropriate practices, and to develop effective guidance and management techniques, all while earning an Early Childhood Assistant Teacher Certificate and 12 college credits.
