Becoming Certified to Teach

  • Overview
  • Is it possible to complete a master's degree at the end of the two years?
  • Is a master's degree required?
  • Which universities do you partner with?

Certification can be obtained in two years by completing testing, coursework, and program requirements.

All incoming corps members must meet state testing requirements prior to starting our program in June. Maryland requires the Praxis Core Academic Skills of Educators exam OR other qualifying scores, as well as a Praxis II content exam in the area you are teaching.

During the corps experience, corps members take certification coursework through Johns Hopkins University and have the option to pursue a Master’s degree at JHU. To finance tuition, corps members typically use their AmeriCorps Education Awards and partial tuition reimbursement benefits from their district. To successfully complete our program and become eligible for professional teacher certification, corps members must meet testing, coursework, and program requirements within the two years of the program.
