What is PREPARE+?
The PREPARE+ Teacher Residency Program is a partnership between High Point University, North Carolina A&T State University and Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools. This partnership was formed out of the necessity to recruit and retain highly effective, diverse teachers who have the desire to teach in high-need areas and schools. Teacher residents will have the opportunity to complete a MAT (Master of Arts in Teaching) in Elementary Education with a literacy concentration from High Point University or a MAT in Math Education (9-12) or Special Education (K-12) from North Carolina A&T State University.
The residency program is designed to facilitate peer mentoring, networking and professional collaboration. Residents will complete a program which consist of rigorous, graduate-level coursework and a full-time clinical residency which culminates in full licensure and a master’s degree.
