Teacher apprentice program grows at Academy

Christel House Academy’s innovative teacher recruitment program, IndyTeach is expanding. Ten new apprentice teachers have been recruited. “IndyTeach affords people who did not go to school to be a teacher an opportunity to have a pathway into the profession without having to go back to the university,” says Carey Dahncke, Head of Schools, Christel House Schools. The unique program offers professionals the chance to earn a salary while learning to become a teacher. Teacher recruitment can be a challenge for urban schools. But this year over 60 applicants vied for the IndyTeach positions. In its first year, four apprentices successfully completed the program – and all chose to sign with Christel House as full-time teachers. “That says a lot about the program and the culture at Christel House,” says Lisa Andriate, Talent Specialist, Christel House Schools.
