About the Summit Learning Teacher Residency:

Our world is dramatically different than it was when our public school system was born over 100 years ago.  Employers today demand college graduates who are highly skilled at working in teams, thinking critically, solving complex problems, planning and prioritizing work  and communicating effectively – in short, graduates with 21st century skills.  

Summit has built a Personalized Learning model designed to equip students with these crucial skills. And yet, we know that current teacher credentialing and professional development programs are not adequately preparing teachers for these schools.  To support the creation of high-quality Personalized Learning schools across America, we need high-quality Personalized Learning teachers, both at Summit and in schools across the nation.

We also know that to reach their highest potential, our students need teachers with diverse backgrounds and experiences. We must intentionally create pathways that bring more diversity into the teaching profession.  

The Summit Learning Teacher Residency will recruit a new generation of diverse teachers and support them in building the skills, mindset, and practice to lead a high-quality personalized learning classroom. It is a one year program during which residents are immersed in Summit classrooms while also completing credentialing coursework leading to a California Single Subject Teaching Credential.  We plan to expand the program into additional regions of the country in partnership with the Summit Learning Program in future years.
