Partner Programs

We facilitate a robust Network where innovative programs collaborate, share best practices, and partner with us to continuously improve their programs.

Teacher residency programs are, by definition, district-serving teacher education programs that pair a rigorous full-year classroom apprenticeship with masters-level education content. Residency programs uniquely serve this purpose, preparing teachers in district schools for district schools, so that teachers are prepared to be effective on their first day as teacher of record.

Partners Nationwide

Through a highly selective recruitment process, residencies attract a diverse group of talent college graduates.
