ACT Alternative Certification for Teachers in San Antonio

About ACT Central TX

  • Everyone in our office is a certified teacher, administrator, or has been an instructional assistant or substitute teacher. We feel that a program must really know the education system before it can prepare successful teachers. (other programs are run by people that have never been in a classroom)
  • The majority of our training is completed through self paced, self managed learner centered activities. We have a face to face component that is facilitated by actual classroom teachers in small groups (25:1).
  • Our training program is specific to your certification area
  • Our curriculum is NCLB approved and guaranteed to be in alignment with the educator standards.
  • Each candidate will be assigned a Field Supervisor that is available to them round the clock. (other programs have "coaches" that only come in to your classroom to complete the state minimum number of observations)
  • All of our Field Supervisors are certified classroom teachers - totaling 650+ years of experience in the classroom and TTESS trained. Each candidate will receive a guaranteed minimum of 6 classroom visits and meet monthly with a small cohort (10:1) for on-going professional development and support throughout the first year.
  • Because our Field Supervisors spend so much time on your campus, ACT has been proactive and completed a background check on each of our Field Supervisors to be in compliance with SB 9.
  • ACT offers our candidates TExES practice tests for self assessment for no additional charge. In the 2014-2015 school year, ACT candidates had a 99% pass rate on the PPR exam. (Other program set candidates up for tests for which they are not qualified - causing candidates to spend excessive money on exams. They also charge for reviews and materials.)
