The School of Education & Human Services signed an articulation agreement with Tapestry Charter School which allows students to take university-level introductory courses and apply academic credits to their degree requirements at Canisius. This “Grow Your Own Teacher Program” is funded by a $20,000 award received by Canisius from the Cullen Foundation. The program began on September 1, 2023, and runs through June 30, 2024.

Tapestry students completed EDU 100: Exploring the Teaching Profession instructed at Tapestry Charter School during the fall 2023 semester. In the Spring 2024 semester, students will enroll in ENG 111 – Academic Writing, which will be instructed on the Canisius campus.

“We are excited to expand our collaboration with Tapestry Charter School and to introduce high school students to the teaching profession,” said Sara R. Morris, PhD, vice president for academic affairs. “This agreement will enhance the student experience and help prepare them for the next step in their educational journeys.”

To be eligible to take courses and earn credit with Canisius University, students must be juniors or seniors who are academically prepared for college-level course work.

Tapestry high school students who earn credit through this articulation, and who apply for and are admitted to Canisius as an undergraduate student, may apply those credits to their degree requirements at Canisius University.  Tapestry high school students may request a transcript be sent to any college or university they choose to attend for evaluation of courses EDU 100 and ENG 111 by that institution.
