About Billiken Teacher Corps

The Billiken Teacher Corps at Saint Louis University forms the next generation of Catholic school educators through service, learning, and spiritual growth in community. This program is a unique opportunity for faith-driven college graduates to have a transformative impact in underserved Catholic schools in St. Louis, MO.

BTC members live the Jesuit Mission of being men and women for and with others. For two years, the members live in an intentional faith community while teaching full time and earning their Master of Arts in Teaching degree with full tuition-remission. Members also earn a Missouri teaching certificate via the alternative route, if they are not already certified.

“I took a semester long class to discuss global education and service in Belize. We went through the political structure and the economic structure of the country which was immensely helpful in understanding the poverty level. The actual experience itself I loved. We worked at St. Martin de Porres in the classrooms helping to work with students who were behind and reorganizing the school library. ”
