Who Should Apply
In order to be eligible to apply to the BVTeach, applicants must be a high school student attending either Bryan ISD, Caldwell ISD, Brenham ISD, or Hearne ISD. Applicants must also plan to enroll in CTE Public Service Endorsement and dual credit courses in their high school. To get started, talk to your parents/guardians and school counselor today.
There are 3 benefits for students to become a BVTeach student.
Workforce credentials. We are looking for Brazos Valley high school students interested in completing a Public Service, Endorsement or an Educational Aide 1 Certificate.
Dual Credit. The BVTeach Program will also help you identify dual credit opportunities by taking teaching and training classes at your high school. Dual credit classes that count toward a two-year degree in child development or education.
College Access. Once BVTeach students graduate high school, they go on to earn a two-year associate’s degree from Blinn College and then complete their degree at a four-year institution.
Starting as early as 8th grade, students can speak with their school’s counselor to learn more about the BVT program. Once in high school, you can join the BVTeach program and begin taking college level education classes as part of a public service endorsement. The BVTeach program is made up of two tracks.
Track one is perfect for students who are interested in earning only workforce credentials: a Public Service Endorsement (PSE) or Educational Aide 1 Certificate.
Track two is ideal for students who want to earn their workforce credentials and pursue a 2- or 4-year degree in child development or education.
That means that once you finish the classes and graduate high school, you are prepared to work in a teaching and training field as you work on your associate’s degree at Blinn College. We know applying for college and choosing what classes to take can be confusing so we also made that part easier.
Our high school diploma plan and college plan will allow you to start taking classes from high school, and will continue through your college career. With this road map, you’ll be on your path to success with an associate’s degree from Blinn College, and eventually an education degree from a four-year institution.
You are the next generation of teaching and training professionals and we are passionate about seeing you succeed. We’re ready for you!
