You will be given access to your Teachworthy portal and begin the process for your first step, preparing for your certification exams ($116 each). We point you to resources to assist your preparation and document your readiness to test ($30).
After you pass your content exams, you can move forward and begin working on your training modules, field-based experiences, and career resources. We recommend that you purchase a supporting textbook from Amazon ($20) that is a great resource for first-year teachers and pairs with the training modules.
Once you are hired as a teacher, the program fee of $3,960 is paid monthly over the course of your first year teaching. The Texas Education Agency requires certain additional fees that include your initial certification fee ($78), your finger printing fee ($52.20) and your final teaching certificate ($78).
In total, the entire investment to become certified will be between $4,662-$4,778 depending on the number of content exams you take.
Once you have met with your Program Advisor, signed your certification plan and have decided to move forward, you will be sent a Formal Admission Letter and receive an invoice for $195.
