The Urban Teacher Preparation Academy is an intensive clinical and mentorship program designed to train more qualified and effective teachers for urban schools.
The academy provides students with a full year of student teaching in an Oklahoma City Public Schools classroom, followed by continued mentorship and professional development throughout the first two years of their teaching careers.
