Additional Information

Major Program Components

  • Classroom Field Experiences: Class Act students are paired with local master teachers to complete 100 total hours of paid classroom field experience. Yes, PAID! Classroom experientials are available in preschool, elementary, middle and secondary settings. This includes observation and working with students to ensure that teaching is the right path for you.
  • "Tweaked" Curriculum: Class Act students take the same courses other students at ICC take, but courses taken as a Class Act cohort are "tweaked" toward education. Class Act students receive an Associate of Arts degree, which transfers to a four-year college or university.
  • Educational Adventures: Class Act students are offered the chance to participate in adventures to educational sites, such as charter schools, elementary, middle and high schools, and to four-year colleges and universities.
  • College Visits: Class Act students will take day trips to St. Scholastica and Bemidji State University in the Fall of their sophomore year
  • GPA Requirement: Class Act students are required to maintain a 2.5 GPA across ALL of their classes. Failure to do so will result in an academic warning. If grades do not improve, you will be dropped from the program.
