PENN RESIDENCY MASTER’S IN TEACHING:
Hotchkiss is a member of a consortium of schools that have partnered with the University of Pennsylvania in their Penn Residency Master’s in Teaching (PRMT) program. The PRMT program is a two-year commitment after which Teaching Fellows will have gained invaluable teaching experience at Hotchkiss and earned an M.S.Ed. from the University of Pennsylvania. The PRMT program runs concurrently with two years of residential teaching at Hotchkiss and involves a week of work at Penn in each of two summers, online work with the entire cohort of 20-25 fellows from the member schools, one weekend a term studying with University of Pennsylvania faculty members at one of the partner schools, and coursework with a mentor at Hotchkiss as well as the regular residential teaching duties of Teaching Fellows described above. If a candidate is offered a PRMT teaching fellowship position and accepts that offer, he or she must apply for acceptance into the University of Pennsylvania’s Graduate School of Education with the support of the hiring boarding school.
