Key to Testing
The key to matriculating in RTR is to knock out your testing. And sometimes it takes a try or two to reach the threshold score. So, please give yourself plenty of time to study, and plenty of room to retake. Once passed, these tests will enable you to become a licensed teacher in the Commonwealth of Virginia along with completing your residency and graduate degree.
RTR will be periodically offering study groups for the VCLA and the Praxis Core Math. Check back here for dates and times.
We offer a $500 testing reimbursement for all Cohort residents which is disbursed with your first stipend payment.
You will need a passing score on all of your required exams by April 1st for fall candidate resident offers and May 21st for spring candidate resident offers. Those who fail to meet testing threshold scores will not be able to be part of the RTR program.
So the key to success, is to invest in studying and to tackle the tests early.
