The primary goal of the Teacher Cadet Program in South Carolina is to encourage academically able students who possess exemplary interpersonal and leadership skills to consider teaching as a career. An important secondary goal of the program is to provide these talented future community leaders with insights about teachers and schools so that they will be civic advocates of education.
The Teacher Cadet Program is an innovative approach designed to attract talented young people to the teaching profession through a challenging introduction to teaching. The program seeks to provide high school students insight into the nature of teaching, the problems of schooling and the critical issues affecting the quality of education in America 's schools.
Newberry College is pleased to serve as College Partner to 8 area high schools, including Airport High School, Irmo High School, Dutch Fork High School, Lugoff-Elgin High School, Chapin High School, Mid-Carolina High School, Newberry High School, and Columbia High School. While there are many facets to the college partnership at Newberry College, some important aspects of the relationship include 3 hours of college credit offered to successful Teacher Cadets absolutely free of charge, college professors to visit the high school classes and materials supplied to the classes for their use.
Probably the most popular aspect of the relationship is Teacher Cadet College Day, a day planned by former Teacher Cadets who attend Newberry College, which is held for current Teacher Cadets.
