The University of North Carolina at Charlotte has launched an on-campus high school for aspiring teachers. The new high school, located in the same building as the education school, is the result of a partnership between the university's Cato College of Education and the Charlotte-Mecklenburg school system.

The Charlotte Teacher Early College High School opened its doors to 50 9th graders last month. Students will spend their first two years completing high school requirements and in the remaining three years tackle general-education college requirements while training to lead classes of their own. By graduation, they will have accumulated up to 60 college credits that can be transferred to Cato College where they can earn their teaching degrees.

Many high schools across the country have programs for aspiring teachers. But the Charlotte high school may be among the first to be housed on a college campus.
