City Year is proud to partner with the Philadelphia Teacher Residency so our alumni can continue to make a difference in classrooms and in the lives of students. This partnership reflects the shared visions and values of both organizations, and their belief that young people can keep students on track to graduate from high school and pursue post-secondary education. City Year strengthens an applicant’s competitiveness and chances for being selected for the Philadelphia Teacher Residency.
Philadelphia Teacher Residency (PTR) is a teacher preparation program for science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) professionals and graduates who want to teach math and science in Philadelphia’s high need schools (grades 6-12). For a full school year, program participants (Residents) will learn at the elbow of experienced teachers in Philadelphia secondary school classrooms. At the same time, they will take coursework at the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education (Penn GSE) or Drexel University's School of Education to earn both a Master’s Degree and Pennsylvania teacher certification. PTR is a program of the Philadelphia Education Fund in partnership with Penn GSE and Drexel's School of Education.
