Alternative Route to Certification program at Schoolcraft College
Schoolcraft College has been approved by the state of Michigan to offer an Alternative Route to Interim Teacher Certification Program. This program is designed for college graduates, who meet specific admission requirements, to be able to become certified classroom teachers using a rigorous, accelerated preparation program. The teaching certificate will enable program completers to teach in Michigan’s public, charter, and parochial classrooms in a wide variety of disciplines. An individual can become certified to teach in as little as one semester. Unlike the traditional teacher preparation program, the alternate route candidate’s certification is not contingent on their academic major or minor.
In addition, currently certified teachers can now also use the ARC program to add additional endorsements to their teaching certificates. Candidates will complete the current ARC coursework and requirements. As in the case of initial certification, a major or minor is not required. See webpage below for more information and to apply.
ARC Program Information Meeting will be on Tuesday, February 20, 2018 at 5 p.m. on Schoolcraft’s Livonia campus. Individuals who would like to attend can RSVP via e-mail (email@example.com) or by calling 734-462-7375.
