Formal Admission Requirements
In order to be Formally Admitted into the Teaching Excellence ACP program, a candidate must be hired by one of our partnering districts, hold a minimum of a bachelors degree from a regionally accredited university (or the international equivalent), and meet the following requirements:
If you have ever been enrolled in a certification program, you will need to complete a transfer form before we are able to consider you for Formal Admission.
Failure to meet any of the aforementioned requirements will result in a delay in your certification.
Any coursework or hours completed prior to Formal Admission are purely for developmental purposes and will not count towards the hours required for certification.
The decision of whether or not to extend an offer of Formal Admission is at the discretion of Teaching Excellence.
***If you are eligible for admission without having passed the Content Exam, you will still need to take and pass it prior to beginning your internship year. A failure to do so will result in a delay in your certification.***
Take and Pass the PACT Content Exam assigned to you by Teaching Excellence in your initial email
Have a minimum GPA of 2.5 on a conferred degree (or last 60 hours of a conferred degree)
A minimum of 12 semester credit hours in the subject-specific content area for certification sought (unless math or science, which need 15 credit hours)
