The Teaching and Learning Academy is designed for students with an interest in education and human services. Courses cover the major components of teaching and learning including childhood development, curriculum, and pedagogy from early childhood through high school. The required courses, coupled with a unique field experience opportunity will prepare students for post-secondary studies and careers in education, social work, and related fields.
Students will graduate from this academy with their Child Development Associate (CDA) Educational Endorsement Certificate of Achievement, the only nationally recognized certification for Early Childhood Education. The nationally recognized credential has been accepted as a state requirement for working in many early childhood centers.
