Haggai Academy Co-Curricular Programming
Students in the Haggai Academy engage in a range of co-curricular training and experiences.
- Seminars. Students attend 90-minute seminar sessions, offered approximately three times per semester that include information about the work/practice of school counselors, nurses, social workers, and additional support service personnel. Leading these sessions will be faculty from affiliated departments and units at UNC Greensboro such as the School of Nursing and the departments of Counseling and Educational Development, Library & Information Science, Specialized Education Services, Communication Sciences Disorders, Public Health, and Social Work.
- Service Learning. Students engage in community-based learning that aid them in integrating their own beliefs about people and learning as well as stereotypes about students and their families. Such community engagement will also broaden the students’ knowledge about children and families and the services available to them through the introduction of wrap-around services.
- Leadership Development. Students in the Haggai Academy will earn hours and receive leadership certificates recognizing their community service beyond their internship/student teaching responsibilities.
- Breadth of Experience. Students will be introduced to, and will work with, teachers, principals, and various school personnel presently working in schools designated as Title I.
