What is a Teacher Cadet?
The Teacher Cadet Program is designed to encourage academically abled high school 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 become civic advocates of education.
As a college partner, Columbia College supports the programs through teaching opportunities, guest speakers, an introduction to the college admission and financial aid process, a Student for a Day experience on our campus as well as SURCIES (a Columbia College tradition).
