HOW TO APPLY

  1. Apply. You’ll need to have some information handy, like test scores, transcripts and a resume. Don’t be surprised if you get a call from the founder himself after you hit submit.
  2. Talk to Rowan. He’s our founder and admissions guru. He’ll give you more detailed information on the admissions process and conduct a phone interview to see if you’re the right fit for the program.
  3. Take a Praxis Subject Assessment. It’s a test that tells us how well you know your content area. But, if you’ve talked to Rowan, you’ll know all about it. U of L provides a list of some great resources to help you prepare. You will be reimbursed for the cost of the test, too.
  4. Get invited to Recruiting Weekend. This is where you’ll finally get a chance to visit Louisville. You’ll meet current participants, the Teach Kentucky staff and have the opportunity to meet with representatives from the University of Louisville and Jefferson County Public Schools. Did we mention that most of your expenses are paid?

After recruitment weekend, the real work begins. If you’re extended a spot in the program, you’ll start the next phase, where you gain admission to an MAT program, apply for a teaching job in Jefferson County Public Schools and start planning your move to our glorious city, Louisville, Kentucky.

If you ever have questions about applying, feel free to contact us.

Earlier applications are often the most successful applications. Due to the timing of the required PRAXIS exams—and because the earlier you apply the more time we have to communicate and get to know each other—we strongly encourage you to apply as soon as possible.
