Golden Apple prepares highly-effective teachers for rural, suburban and urban schools-of-need in Illinois. Through our Scholars Program, we are committed to making a material difference in resolving the Illinois teacher shortage by recruiting, preparing, placing, mentoring and retaining high-quality teachers in schools throughout Illinois.
The Need Is Great.
