Either a PA Professional Teaching Certificate OR a four-year degree, including 18 semester hours in a core discipline and 6 semester hours in education. (Education or discipline credits may be earned while working for The Academy Schools.)
An education is our students “ticket to ride” in life, and our teachers ensure our students receive a first class education. Teachers provide instruction in one of our core disciplines: mathematics, English, social studies, health & physical education, and science.
Candidates do not need to have an education degree. The Academy Schools provides opportunities for employees to receive certification as a teacher through the Pennsylvania Department of Education and tuition assistance to complete required classes for certification.

“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.”
