Pass the MTTC 

Prior to admission into the program, all candidates must show evidence of passing the MI Test for Teacher Certification (MTTC). Need support? Our program offers unique coaching and resources to help you pass with flying colors.


Admission & interim license

Upon acceptance, you'll immediately be awarded your interim teaching license, which will kick off a 13 month apprenticeship.


13 month coaching & curriculum

Our program offers a residency-based model, where you'll spend your apprenticeship year learning research-supported, leading curriculum, applying those concepts while teaching in the classroom, and getting real-time feedback from expert coaches and fellow program participants. Learn more.


Cohort network support

After graduating from your 13 month coursework and coaching program, you'll teach two additional years to complete the process. During this time you'll have the option to attend quarterly Professional Learning Network meetings to collaborate with other peers in the program and access program coaches for continued support.



Full certification! 

Following your two additional years of teaching, you'll be recommended for standard certification.
