Teacher Training Academy at Community School

training effective and reflective teachers

Sun Valley Community School’s Teacher Training Academy (TTA) is a unique teacher preparation program that provides interns with a wide variety of teaching and educational experiences. The TTA is a ten-month program with an option to return for a second ten-month experience. Interns gain extensive teaching experience alongside mentor teachers and serve as Residential Advisors at the school's Rufus M. Brown Residence Hall. Off campus housing is provided by the School. In addition, interns have the option to enroll in Boise State University’s Masters of Education program. 

In every division at Sun Valley Community School, the faculty is generous, devoted, welcoming, and has clear passion for their profession and for working with students. I'm inspired each day by observing other teachers in their classrooms and in their interactions with students.
