What Makes Our Program Special? Back


Are you looking for a place to earn your teacher certification? ACT San Antonio is a unique alternative certification program that is different from the rest. Our streamlined and affordable teacher certification program provides everything you need to quickly begin your career in education and become a certified teacher in Texas. Here are a few of the many things that set us apart from other certification programs:
  • Our dedication to education drives us to continually provide the very best to our candidates looking to become certified teachers in Texas.
  • Everyone in our office is a certified teacher, administrator, or has been an instructional assistant or substitute teacher. We feel that a program must really know the education system before it can prepare successful teachers. (other programs are run by people that have never been in a classroom)
  • The majority of our training is completed through self-paced, self-managed learner centered activities. We have a face to face component that is facilitated by actual classroom teachers in small groups (25:1).
  • Our training program is specific to your certification area
  • Our curriculum is NCLB approved and guaranteed to be in alignment with the educator standards.
  • Each candidate will be assigned a Field Supervisor that is available to them round the clock. (other programs have "coaches" that only come in to your classroom to complete the state minimum number of observations)
  • All of our Field Supervisors are certified classroom teachers - totaling 650+ years of experience in the classroom and TTESS trained. Each candidate will receive a guaranteed minimum of 6 classroom visits and meet monthly with a small cohort for on-going professional development and support throughout the first year.
  • ACT offers our candidates TEXES practice tests for self-assessment for no additional charge. In the 2014-15 school year, ACT candidates had a 99% pass rate on the PPR exam. Other program set candidates up for tests for which they are not qualified - causing candidates to spend excessive money on exams. They also charge for reviews and materials.
  • Multiple locations. Not from San Antonio? ACT has two other locations in Texas, making it convenient for others in the state to earn their teacher certification with our program.
Trust your certification to educators that are dedicated to guiding and supporting you through the process. We are personal, accessible and can answer your questions on the spot. Contact us today to learn more!
