Application Process

The Teacher Residency applications follow a six-step process:

Step 1: Learn About Our Program + Approach
Step 2: Complete the Online Application

The first step in the process is to create an online application. This includes:

  • Submitting a resumé
  • Answering the question: Please tell us why you want to become a teacher, including your professional, educational, and personal path towards making this decision
    • Answers can be a short essay (approximately 200 words), video (approximately 3-5 minutes), a slide deck, or any other format that allows candidates to share authentically
    • Responses should fully answer the question and provide insight into the candidate’s path to teaching. Make sure to include details about life experiences and factors driving the candidate toward a career in education
  • Providing unofficial copy of your undergraduate transcripts
  • Providing names and email addresses of three references we can contact to learn more about your experience working with youth and/or related work experience
Step 3: Phone Interview

Following the submission of the online application, we’ll conduct a phone interview to discuss short answer responses, motivations, and experience.

Step 4: Short Response

After the phone interview, we will ask you to complete a short answer response about why this program is a good fit for you.

Step 5: Virtual Face-to-Face Interview

Following your response, we’ll conduct a video interview to delve deeper into reflections and questions.

Step 6: Admissions

If you are accepted into our program and decide to enroll, you will need to provide the following documents:

  • A signed enrollment agreement
  • Proof that you have attempted, passed, or signed up for the CSET
  • Official Transcripts
Step 6: Cooperating Teacher Matching

When you are accepted into the program, you will be matched with a Cooperating Teacher based on subject area, location preferences, and information provided during the application process.
