What is CalTeach?

CalTeach is a systemwide program initiated by the state and the University of California president to prepare and support students who are interested in becoming K-12 math and science teachers.


Mission Statement

The UC Merced CalTeach program is designed to address the shortage of science and mathematics teachers in California's elementary, middle, and secondary schools, particularly in the Central Valley region. This innovative program recruits and prepares mathematics and science majors for teaching careers by providing special coursework and field experiences in K-12 schools in the Central Valley, as well as direct pathways to a teaching credential in California.
