Applicant Information


The CREC Teacher Residency Program is an alternate route to elementary certification program that embraces a different approach to attract and retain minority teacher candidates (residents):
  • Resident selection prioritizes potential to work with diverse students and minimizes barriers to traditional certification program admission.

  • Residents participate in courses for 18 months at low cost.

  • Residents work for one year under a mentor teacher while receiving pay and benefits.

  • Residents earn CT certification after fourteen months.

  • Coursework is designed by practicing educators and prioritizes skills necessary to be successful in a diverse classroom.

  • Residents are guaranteed a full-time teaching position upon completion of the program and certification requirements.

    Do you demonstrate a commitment to diversity in the field of education?

    Do you hold a Bachelor's degree?

    Are you an alumnus/alumna of a CREC Magnet School, Hartford Public School, or Open Choice program?
