Education is your’ “ticket to ride” in life… for our students, this is reality.
For our teachers, their goal is to transform each student into a life-long, successful learner.

An education degree is NOT required.

Either a PA professional teaching certificate OR a private teaching certificate which initially requires a four-year degree, including 6 semester hours in a core discipline.

“I like the challenge this job provides and I like trying to help these kids” “They really aren’t much different than I was at their age so if I can help some of them to be successful, I feel like I am making a difference.” “I love what we do here and I know if I taught at another school, I wouldn’t be able to affect the kids the way I do here.”
