Future Educator

The Pathway

Through a partnership with the University of Colorado Denver School of Education & Human Development, we are pleased to add a dual enrollment pathway for high school students who want to be future teachers/educators. These courses should transfer into degree programs for early childhood, elementary, or special education pathways (varies by college). Students will have an opportunity to participate in a field experience and gain up to 24 college credits through UCD.

Courses can be taken together in a sequence over two years, or students can opt into a single course (however, Lifespan Development and Field Experience must be taken concurrently). With successful completion of Field Experience in Year 1, students can opt into an additional Field Experience (Internship) in year 2 for .5 elective credit. None of the courses have prerequisites.

  
This application is only for NEW students 2024-25.  Continuing (Year2) students will need to get their applications from their teacher.  Applications for 2024-25 will open January 12th.
