ABOUT THE ARIZONA CENTER FOR TEACHER PREPARATION
The Arizona Center for Teacher Preparation is an Arizona-specific branch of the nationwide non-profit organization the American Board. Both organizations are dedicated to placing qualified teachers in the classroom through alternative teaching certification.
Approved as an official route to teacher certification by the Arizona State School Board in January 2013, the Arizona Center for Teacher Preparation (AZCTP) is a faster and more affordable way to become a certified teacher than going back to school for a Master’s degree. We provide a pathway for local school districts to invest in teachers from within their community, rather than recruiting from other states or even other countries.
Our program will educate you on the Principles of Teaching, allowing you to manage a classroom with ease. You will also be paired with an experienced teacher in a mentorship during your first year of teaching. After this initial year, you will be able to upgrade to a Provisional teaching license and eventually to the renewable Standard teaching license.
