Wheeling Jesuit University’s Charleston Center Offers
Online Teacher Certification Program

ACT, Wheeling Jesuit University’s Accelerated Certification for Teaching program, is an online certificate program that is designed for individuals who hold a bachelor’s degree and seek to qualify for state teacher certification. ACT provides an alternative pathway to teaching for individuals who have not completed a teacher preparation course but who have considerable life experiences, career achievements, and academic backgrounds that are relevant for teaching in grades 5 through 12.

The ACT program offers an accelerated path to teacher certification for those interested in teaching as a second career or those who already serve in the classroom as temporary, emergency, or substitute teachers who need to earn a formal teaching credential.

This online program offers students the flexibility to remain in their present career or classroom while they prepare to fully enter the teaching profession, although, full time participation is required during the final semester to complete the student teaching requirement.

The ACT program can be completed in as little as 18 months!

ACT allows students to complete only the requirements they need…not an entire bachelor’s degree.

Credit is given for all required classes that have been taken at other institutions of higher learning at either the bachelors or masters levels.
