• Thought about changing children’s lives as a teacher?

    If you would like to make an impact on children in your community by becoming a teacher but were stopped by the expense, the time, and the frustration involved, consider the Arizona Center for Teacher Preparation for a faster, cheaper, and easier route to teacher certification.
  • Welcome to the Arizona Center for Teacher Preparation!

    The Arizona Center for Teacher Preparation (AZCTP) is a non-profit organization dedicated to placing qualified teachers in the classroom through an alternative teaching certification program.

    The state of Arizona is currently facing a severe teacher shortage. The result of such a shortage will affect the education of millions of school children, possibly for life. But you can help!

    If you have a Bachelor’s degree and a desire to make a difference, you can begin teaching in less than one year. Our program is more flexible and much more affordable than going back to school for your Master’s degree. And our paid mentorship program will help ease your transition into the classroom.

    If you’re looking for a new career, are fresh out of college, or want to return to the classroom, join the Arizona Center for Teacher Preparation today!
