Teacher Academy Schools
The Model School Experience
South Clearfield and Sunburst Elementary have trained mentor teachers who host university practicum students each semester. As these experienced teachers model effective instruction and collaborate with practicum students, the practice of both educators is elevated, and our elementary students learn more!
Sunburst Elementary is a new build with an onsite university classroom practicum students and visiting professors can use for embedded learning opportunities. The new South Clearfield Elementary is currently under construction and will be completed in the spring of 2020.
Learn & Earn Teaching Assistant Program
Our Teacher Academy Schools offer a unique opportunity for those who have always wanted to teach but have not thought a pathway was within their reach.
The Learn & Earn Program offers those without a bachelor's degree the chance to work as a teaching assistant while earning an Elementary Bachelors Degree. Through a partnership with Western Governors University, Teaching Assistants work 10 hours a week and receive full tuition support while completing WGU courses.
Our program is currently full, but we are still accepting applications! Please see the Learn & Earn flyer and application for more information!
