With national and state Teachers of the Year among Elon's graduates, the university is well known for its outstanding teacher education curriculum.
As a Fellow, you will be challenged by enriching experiences and a curriculum that is distinguished by many features:
Get real classroom experience early and often -- as a freshman, you will begin observing veteran teachers in local schools.
During Winter Term, you'll travel by charter bus up and down the East Coast to visit socially, culturally and historically important sites. Explore cities such as Boston and Philadelphia.
Study in England or Costa Rica (or an appropriate country if you're a foreign language major) for a semester to gain a global view of education and work with students from a variety of backgrounds.
Learn from supportive faculty mentors who will challenge and inspire you to become a leader in education.
Who should apply?
Outstanding students who rank in the top 15 percent of their high school class, have a GPA of at least 3.7, and have a combined critical reading, math and writing SAT score of 1850 (ACT 28) or higher should consider applying. Twenty Teaching Fellows will be selected annually.
Note: Music education majors must also complete a department audition in conjunction with their admission to Elon.
