About TEACH: The TEACH Academy at Century High School is a school within a school program for sophomores, juniors and seniors who are interested in careers in teaching. The mission of the program is to develop a strong foundation for college bound students who are interested in becoming educators and role models in their community. TEACH students progress through an integrated curricular path with a focus on elementary, middle, and secondary teaching careers. Students who successfully complete the three-year pathway will have earned 15 units of articulated credit through Santa Ana College. Interspersed with classes and career development opportunities, students participate in team building activities (Alpine Center, Academy Orientation Day), university visits (UCI, CSU Fullerton, Concordia), and curricular experiences (Discovery Cube, Knott's Berry Farm, Tanaka Farms, Ed. Rising).
