Our Program

Not all teacher certification programs are created equal. Teachers of Tomorrow has streamlined the certification process over the last 12 years to create a route to the classroom that is affordable, convenient, rigorous, effective, and approved in each state we operate in.

A Brief History

The Alternative Route to Certification

Teachers of Tomorrow was founded in 2005, in response to a growing teacher shortage, with the goal of bringing much needed innovation and competition to an industry that did not effectively meet the needs of school districts or potential teachers. Our strategy has enhanced the candidate experience and filled thousands of district openings with quality teachers.

Our Approach To Certification

Not all ACPs are created equal. Many certification programs have high price tags, arbitrary deadlines, and poor customer service.

A comprehensive independent study from the University of Texas of over 200,000 math scores and 300,000 reading scores showed no difference in student achievement between our teachers and teachers from traditional routes.

Become A Teacher Through

Teachers of Tomorrow

We have created a best-in-class alternative teacher certification program to ensure we meet the needs of career changers who want to come into the teaching profession, our schools who need talent now, and students who want a highly professional, engaging teacher. Our teacher certification program involves the following steps.


We attract tens of thousands of diverse teacher certification students each year across the United States, primarily in Florida, Nevada, Texas, and Utah. We actively recruit a candidate pool that more closely matches the demographics of student populations.


Candidates must meet minimum requirements to be accepted into our program and become a teacher. Requirements include earning a bachelor’s degree with the minimum GPA for the state as verified by college transcript(s), passing the Teachers of Tomorrow interview, and a clear background check.


We provide over 300 hours of comprehensive coursework during our teacher alternative certification program. Our rigorous training process ensures that only well-qualified candidates enter the classroom.


The program facilitates the hiring process by aligning district needs with our diverse candidate pool. Our candidates are hired in high-need areas including STEM, bilingual, and special education. We provide our partner school districts with lists of qualified candidates.


The research is clear that first year teachers need support in order to succeed. Our Field Supervisors work with the teacher’s mentor and school principal to ensure our candidates get the critical support and help they need to be successful in the first year. It is why 68% of our teachers are still teaching after 5 years!


We assist in managing candidate completion of all the teaching license requirements for our candidates in each state. It is not easy to get a teaching license – but our expert advisors make sure you get the credentials you need to get a classroom of your own!
