Friends School is fortunate to offer a unique teacher preparation program to aspiring teachers that will enable them to attain a Colorado teaching license as well as a Master’s degree in education. This highly regarded graduate program places teachers in public and independent schools throughout Boulder County each year.

Hands-On Classroom Teaching Experience
Teacher candidates spend four days each week for one school year in either an elementary or preschool classroom, working alongside a mentor teacher in a co-teaching role. Coursework begins in August with an orientation week and continues every Friday throughout the school year.
 
LICENSE & MASTER'S DEGREE

Colorado Teaching License
Upon completion of the program, teacher candidates receive their Initial Colorado Teaching License in either Elementary Education or Early Childhood Education. 

Master’s Degree
Participants in the preparation program may choose to complete a Master’s in Education and Human Development, through our partnership with the University of Colorado Denver. Teacher candidates in the Master’s program receive eighteen hours of graduate credit for their classroom teaching experience and coursework completed during their program year. The remaining eighteen credits are generally taken over the summer and following year.
