The Teacher Cadet Program focuses on high school juniors and seniors and is one of several programs founded by the Center for Educator Recruitment, Retention, and Advancement. Established by the Commission on Higher Education in 1985, the CERRA is in its 27th year of operation, and is the oldest and most established teacher recruitment program in the country.
The Citadel has been a Teacher Cadet College partner to several area high schools for more than two decades.
