Akins Early College High School started a new program called Tomorrow's Teachers for the 2020-2021 school year.  Our goal is to accept 40-50 Incoming 9th-grade students who are highly motivated and ready to start an accelerated pathway on becoming Texas certified teachers within 5-6 years (4 years of high school and 1-2 years of university) instead of going through the traditional track that takes 4 years of high school and 4 years of university. 
 
Partners Include:
  • Akins Early College High School
  • Austin Independent School District (Human Resources Department)
  • Austin Community College
  • The University of Texas at Austin
