  • Are you ready to begin a rewarding career as an educator?

    The Forsyth Teacher Academy is a job-embedded, evidence-based program for teacher preparation. This program is approved by the Georgia Professional Standards Commissions as an alternative route to certification (GaTAPP).

    We provide qualified candidates with a route to obtain teacher certification in their degree or professional field. Designed as a 1 - 2 year program, candidates will teach with the support of a clinical supervisor, mentor, administrator, and job-alike specialist while engaging in professional learning and pedagogy seminars. 

    Qualified applicants must take and pass all required assessments to be considered for admission. Applications are accepted at any time, but admission occurs once a year in the spring. We strongly recommend that candidates complete all testing requirements by March of the year they apply.
