Academy for Future Teachers

The Academy for Future Teachers is a three-week summer program for bright, talented, diverse high school students seriously considering a career teaching math or science in an urban environment or in a math or science field.


Thanks to Grady High for this heads up!


The Academy for Future Teachers is designed for bright, talented, and diverse high school students seriously considering a career teaching math or science in an urban environment or a math or science career track. In AFT, students collaborate with outstanding public school teachers and with university faculty, developing teaching and tutoring skills, participating in field trips, and building an appreciation for the value of professional and academic preparation. Math and science concepts are reinforced as participants practice presentation skills which they demonstrate as they teach fellow students. Teamwork and leadership skills are emphasized.

At AFT, students collaborate with public school teachers and university faculty, reviewing core math and science concepts and developing teaching skills which they apply in work with real students. Great educators’ skills are key to success in many walks of life.
