Future Educator

  • Future EducatorThe Future Educator Pathway is a CTE Pathway that includes innovation, dual enrollment course work, and culminates in an established apprenticeship within CCSD. As an apprentice, students earn valuable experience and work hours in the Education pathway, working as a paraprofessional in a K-8 placement within the Cherry Creek School District. Students can earn college credits, wages, paraprofessional certification, classroom hours and access to a professional network. Courses are available to all students, not just those interested in an Apprenticeship. University of Colorado Denver classes will require additional fees depending on number of credits taken per semester.
