NAU Offers Teachers Academy at Phoenix College

Northern Arizona University is partnering with Phoenix College to offer the NAU Teachers Academy this fall. The Academy was launched last year by Governor Doug Ducey to bring more teachers to Arizona’s classrooms.

Under the Teachers Academy program, any tuition costs not paid by scholarships or grants are waived for Academy candidates in exchange for their future commitment to teach in select Arizona schools.

Students start by earning their associate degree at Phoenix College, then stay on the Phoenix College campus to earn their bachelor’s degree from NAU. Students complete their practicum and student teaching at schools within Phoenix Elementary School District #1 and agree to teach in low-income schools after graduation.

For more information about NAU’s Teachers Academy at Phoenix College, go to the NAU Teachers Academy website www.nau.edu/teachersacademy or contact Danielle Contreras - danielle.contreras@nau.edu, NAU Student Service Coordinator for Phoenix College at phoenix@nau.edu.
