Mount Teacher Academy is composed of teachers and interns at Crestwood Middle School and West Frederick Middle School. Mount Saint Mary's University is a part of the Maryland Teaching Consortium, which received grant money to create the Mount Teacher Academy. Its focus is on teacher preparation programs to prepare teachers to thrive and survive in high poverty/high minority schools. The Mount Teacher Academy began the school year with a bus tour of the feeder pattern of where their students live. Teachers and interns attend workshops to help prepare them to thrive and survive in their high poverty/high minority schools.
