Woodrow Wilson Academy of Teaching and Learning



The WW Academy seeks to be a vehicle for transforming teacher education and school leader policy and practice at scale.

What is the Woodrow Wilson Academy?

The Woodrow Wilson Academy of Teaching and Learning is a pioneering graduate school of education built in collaboration with MIT. The WW Academy focuses on real-world outcomes and makes the most of the way learners learn. Teacher candidates progress through a full-time, problem-based, individualized, adaptive curriculum by mastery of core competencies. Once complete, candidates will hold a M.Ed. and initial teacher licensure for middle or high school biology, chemistry, or mathematics.

Students will experience the challenge-based curriculum in a blended environment including online, face-to-face, and clinical education. The WW Academy has a physical campus in Cambridge, MA, where candidates will be able to work with peers and faculty. For the clinical aspect, which includes both traditional and out-of-school settings, candidates will be placed in local public schools, as well as provided mentoring and professional development. The WW Academy has established relationships with the school districts of Burlington, Cambridge, Natick, Revere, and Somerville.

Woodrow Wilson Academy candidates will get assistance during their job search and continue to receive mentoring through their early years as teachers of record.

Applications are being accepted for the inaugural class of Woodrow Wilson Academy master’s candidates, who will begin the program this year. Tuition for this class is set at $10,000 with financial assistance and tuition reimbursement available. Tuition covers your admission to the program and is not dependent on time to completion. The final deadline to be a part of this class is March 15.
