Background Information

The Woodrow Wilson Academy of Teaching and Learning is an innovative, competency-based teacher education program that is redefining the way teachers are prepared. Teacher candidates work towards a master’s degree in education leading towards an initial license at the secondary level in biology, chemistry or mathematics.

The WW Academy admits talented, committed individuals with background in the STEM fields—science, technology, engineering, mathematics—to our program in order to prepare them to succeed in the diverse classrooms of today and to shape and lead the schools of tomorrow. More details are available at: www.woodrowacademy.org/future-teachers/about-the-program
