THE COLLEGE CONNECTION…
Many colleges throughout North Carolina are partners to the Teacher Cadet Program through partnerships with Teacher Cadet classrooms in their areas. Each college partnership reflects a certain degree of uniqueness based on the specific needs of the high schools being served and the resources and expertise available in the cooperating college. Ideally, the college partners bring a wealth of knowledge about education to the course and, in turn, the expertise of working in high schools is valuable to college partners.
Colleges benefit by having the opportunity to showcase their campuses and programs to bright young people and, most importantly, students benefit by having the opportunity to study with both high school and college educators.
After working with the College Partner, visiting and taking part in special activities on campus during the year, many Teacher Cadets choose the partner institution to attend after high school.
