Teacher Cadet LogoMission: The primary goal of the Teacher Cadet Program is to encourage academically able students who possess exemplary interpersonal and leadership skills to consider teaching as a career. An important secondary goal of the Program is to provide these talented future community leaders with insights about teachers and schools so that they will be civic advocates of education.

Students enrolled in Teacher Cadet at partner schools may take Education 101, which is a three (3) credit hour course designed to familiarize senior high school students with the role of the teacher and with the profession of teaching. All students enrolled in this program must meet the criteria established by CERRA for admission into the Teacher Cadet program. Although the class is conducted on the high school's campus, expectations are that students enrolled in the class will perform at university level in terms of written compositions, presentations, attendance, and participation.
