The Temple Education Scholars (TES) Dual Enrollment Program is a year-long program, designed for college-bound high school seniors to take a full semester’s worth of education courses at Temple University in a supportive environment. Students engage deeply in coursework to earn college credit that will apply to a variety of two-and four-year colleges and universities, including a Bachelor’s degree at Temple from the College of Education. This program prepares students for future employment as educators with the School District of Philadelphia. Students will take five college courses in the College of Education that count towards program requirements for majors in Early Childhood Education, Middle Grades Education, Secondary Education, and Human Development/Community Engagement. While not all TES participants may ultimately pursue admission to Temple, a major in education, and/or a career as an educator, all will certainly benefit from the course offerings, the relationships with peers, TES program staff, and Temple professors, and the experience of successfully completing five college courses.
