What is the Residency Program?

    The North Chicago CUSD187 residency program is a collaboration between the National College of Education at National Louis University and District 187 that offers a pathway to teaching for those with a bachelor’s degree in any field. Residents will gain hands-on experience in a district school, with a mentor teacher, and pursue a graduate degree in elementary education. Upon successful completion of the program, and a commitment to work in D187 for at least four years, you will be hired for a full-time teaching job in the district.
