The Apprentice Teacher Training Program is total immersion into the teaching profession. The school provides a stipend of $20/hr to its apprentices, and there is some financial support for apprentices who wish to begin graduate work. Through this comprehensive work experience, apprentices who complete the program gain a unique stepping-stone for a career in teaching. Upon completion of the Apprentice Teacher Training Program, most apprentices apply for full-time teaching positions. 

To be eligible for the program, candidates must have completed a bachelor's degree. Naturally, an active interest in working with children is essential, along with a desire to participate in all aspects of professional life here at school. Scholaris is committed to the development of compassionate teachers who value, accept, and respect all learners. Our school community strives to create an inclusive environment in which each member feels comfortable and accepted, an environment in which students grow in confidence and intellectual curiosity.
