The Kansas Future Teacher Academy, sponsored by Emporia State University and Dodge City Community College and funded by the State of Kansas, is an opportunity for current freshmen, sophomores, and juniors to learn more about what teachers do and whether or not they have the potential for meeting this professional challenge.
Now in its 24th year of existence, the academy will be held June 9-13, 2013 at two locations to accommodate geographic distance at Emporia State University and Dodge City Community College.
– A revamped schedule emphasizing the use of technology as an educator
– An opportunity for 2012 academy alumni to return to the academy this year (as long as they will be a high school student in 2013-14)
– Sessions and social events to help academy attendants better understand college life
– Students interested in attending to the academy can apply for a scholarship to assist in paying the $100 fee for the academy; the scholarships are funded through the Flint Hills Chapter of Phi Delta Kappa (students are also encouraged to acquire sponsorships through local schools, businesses, and/or organizations)
Please identify at least two students from your high school you think would benefit from this five-day look at careers in education and encourage them to apply.
Postmark deadline for submission of applications is March 15, 2013.
