Description of program:
The Education Academy provides students an opportunity to explore education as a career field.

Students will examine the multiple responsibilities and roles of a K-12 teacher; effective teaching practices; human growth and development; develop an understanding of school structures, operations and policies; and explore critical issues in education. Students may attend one or two years.
