Program Overview

Youth in middle school, junior high and high school are a lively and fun group to teach. They are well on their way to becoming adults, but they’ve also left the door wide open, just waiting for an amazing teacher or mentor to make a thoughtful impact. That mentor could be you. You have the opportunity to encourage their faith walk or ignite their excitement over a particular subject.

What to Expect
Candidates complete a 30-credit education sequence which allows them to teach at the Secondary level (grades 6-12) while earning a Master’s of Science in Curriculum and Instruction. Courses are offered entirely online and credit can be given for previously completed Education courses at the graduate level. You will be equipped to teach in middle school, junior high, or high school in both the private and public sectors.
You’ll also learn how to design and use teaching methods in your content area that will make a meaningful impact in the classroom. Our Teaching Certificate Program takes a faith-based approach, which means you will bring faith and learning together in a meaningful way for your students. You will not only graduate equipped to plan lessons, but you will also learn how to build relationships to manage a classroom, use technology and best practices to engage in effective teaching, and be an educator dedicated to service in the classroom, church, and community.
