Students enrolled in the Andrea Castillo Teaching Academy at Ronald W. Reagan Doral Senior High School establish an early connection to teaching and learning. In partnership with FIU, the Teaching Academy seeks to train future educators who will work in local school districts to strengthen the community.
We provide a pathway to careers in teaching - including subjects in STEM, writing and literature, or the arts. Along the way, students learn advanced problem-solving and critical-thinking skills applicable to their field. When they graduate from high school, they come to FIU to complete their degree.
FIU graduates become leaders in education and in their communities. Eighteen of our alumni have been awarded Teacher of the Year, making innovative strides in their field.
