We believe that the role of community is one of the most important factors in successful teaching and learning. While our program is not organized using the cohort-based model, groups of students admitted each year still take many of their courses together, creating a close support network and strong professional ties later on.
Students can become members of the UGA chapter of the Association for Middle Level Education, the leading national and international organization advancing the education of all students ages 10 to 15, helping them succeed as learners and make positive contributions to their communities and to the world.
