Getting started is quick and easy! Begin your journey to Michigan teacher certification & join our collaborative network of passionate educators today.
The eligibility checklist is simple: if you hold a Bachelor's degree, a passion for educating children, and are seeking a program that offers an immersive, collaborative network of colleagues - apply today for free.
Prior to starting the teaching curriculum, 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.
Upon passing the MTTC, you'll immediately be awarded your interim teaching license, which will kick off a 13 month apprenticeship.
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.
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 be required to take a minimum of 16 hours in enrichment courses and have the opportunity to engage with peers our exclusive digital learning network.
Following your two additional years of teaching (meeting the requirements of effective teaching), you'll be recommended for standard certification.
