 Holmes Cadets

The UTRGV College of Education and P-16 Integration has partnered with STISD’s South Texas Business, Education & Technology Academy (BETA) to offer an educator pipeline via the Holmes Cadets (HC’s) Program. HC’s provides BETA students that are interested in a career in education an opportunity to broaden their horizons by completing concurrent college courses at UTRGV.

When completing these concurrent courses, students will also be involved in Participatory Action research that is a very important part of their professional development. The professional development activities have been created with cooperation from BETA education teachers; connecting the education courses taken at BETA with the Participatory Action research activities that will be completed at UTRGV.

The HC’s Program is designed to prepare BETA education students to become extraordinary teachers in the K-12 system. As part of the AACTE-Holmes Program, this program supports historically underrepresented students that wish to pursue a career in education.
