Transition to Teaching

XR Academy is a teacher licensure program that ensures technical expertise in deploying an engaging 5th-12th grade mathematics learning experience for students by strong, capable, and caring teachers.

Over the course of 12-18 months, you will become an expert on running a blended learning mathematics classroom that includes a technology-based approach, while also challenging students to collaborate with their peers. Your training will include a mixture of in-person group training days, independent work inside our LMS, and one-on-ones with our math experts.
