Noyce Teacher Academy at CSI
National Science Foundation Noyce
The goal of this National Science Foundation program is to graduate students who are knowledgeable in the disciplines of mathematics and science and who are well prepared to teach in high need middle or high schools. In this program, students major in mathematics, biology, or chemistry and have internships in host schools every semester. Collaborating teachers in the host schools serve as models for best teaching practices and provide support for Noyce scholars as they learn how to teach effectively. The Noyce program provides a new junior-year entry point for highly qualified candidates into the Teacher Education Honors Academy at the College of Staten Island by funding scholarships for 29 new mathematics and science pre-service teacher candidates.
*Partial support for this program is provided by the National Science Foundation’s Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program under Award No. 0934533
