The Christ the Servant Teaching Corps is a collaboration of Walsh University, the Paul and Carol David Foundation, and Our Lady of Peace Catholic School.

With grant support from the Paul and Carol David Foundation, the new teaching corps program launched last August and is staffed with professionally prepared undergraduate and graduate students in Walsh’s education program. This year’s cohort will include 12 new members for a total of 14 participants in the program. These aspiring educators focus on living out Walsh’s mission and creating an environment that supports the academic, human, spiritual, and service developmental needs of the OLOP students, families, and community.

The Teaching Corps Internship Program provides a two year supervised internship for undergraduates and graduate students of Walsh University’s Division of Education. Tuition assistance, books and fees are provided for the Christ the Servant Teaching Corps Graduate Interns through Walsh University and the David Foundation; Undergraduate Intern stipends are provided through Our Lady of Peace. Tuition assistance is provided for children of Christ the Servant Parishioners by Christ the Servant Parish. Our Lady of Peace Catholic School is not a member of the Holy Cross Academy System of Schools.
