What We Offer

EdRising Academy Curriculum*

For students to truly explore teaching as a potential career path, we must create meaningful learning opportunities within the school day. Educators Rising now offers a solution for schools or districts interested in implementing new education-focused courses or pathways or refreshing existing ones: the EdRising Academy curriculum.

Created with support from the National Education Association (NEA) and the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), the EdRising Academy curriculum emphasizes fundamental teaching practices that are critical for high school students to develop as they take their first steps on the path to becoming accomplished professionals. The curriculum showcases teaching as a complex and rewarding profession and inspires students to pursue it as a career. 

The EdRising Academy curriculum is customizable and can function as a one-year or two-year program; it can support a series of electives or a career and technical education (CTE) program of study.
