Each Metro Academy is a learning community made up of two linked courses each semester, pairing a general education course (such as English or math) with a discipline-specific course (e.g., health, science, ethnic studies, child development). Metro gives students personalized support for college success through in-class academic support and tutoring. Every Metro addresses real-world issues and brings social justice into the classroom. Although you can continue on into any major after you complete Metro, read about the different themes to find a Metro academy that best matches your interests!
The Metro Academy of Teacher Education will support its students in achieving academic excellence while preparing them to become the next generation of urban educators committed to promoting social justice in their teaching with critical and culturally relevant pedagogy.
