What courses will I take?

The pathway coursework, seen in the image below, allows candidates such as yourself to begin the journey with introductory (though rigorous) education courses. These introduce teaching, understanding of child and human development, innovative thinking in education, how to work with families and communities, and opportunities to have field experiences in classrooms.  To be eligible for TREP, students must take at least one of the courses listed below during 12th grade. Note that the course numbers listed here are from within the community college system and may change depending on the institution to which one transfers. Students participating in Early Childhood Education and the Teacher Cadet programs during 12th grade are eligible.

Once selected for TREP, candidates must take at least one of the courses listed each fall and maintain a minimum GPA of 2.0.


To be eligible for TREP, students must: 

  1. Take at least one TREP Pathway Course during their 12th-grade year.  District #11 offers two TREP-qualifying courses in the Future Educator Pathway: Early Childhood Education (ECE1011) and Teacher Cadet (EDU2211). For more information, be sure to check out the Future Educator Pathway courses and the Teacher Cadet course at Doherty High School

  2. #2: Complete the 23-24 D11 Postsecondary Access Programs interest form here for TREP.  If you are a senior, please let us know your interest in the program by April 1. This lets us know how many students are interested in the program for the following year. Failure to complete the form is not a requirement, nor by completing the form are you obligated to apply.

  3. Complete an Individual Career and Academic Plan (ICAP), declaring intent to participate in TREP.

If, at any point in the process, you are no longer interested, please let us know as soon as possible. Candidates not chosen to participate in TREP, as there are limited slots, may be able to participate in The Promise or the ASCENT Program as long as they have met the program requirements. 

*TREP students remain a D11 student, so they are NOT able to accept federal or state financial aid.
