We are recognized for our highly-regarded curriculum, high-quality instruction, small class sizes, personalized attention, supportive learning community, and high post-graduation employment rates. For almost thirty years, we have been training teachers from Mendocino County as well as Sonoma County and Lake County. Our students learn from instructors who are classroom experts and know local school, district, and county cultures.

 

 

 

 

Preliminary Multiple-Subject Teacher Preparation Program

The Preliminary Multiple-Subject Credential authorizes the holder to teach all subjects required in the public school curriculum for a self-contained classroom, pre-school through grade 12. This 34-unit program is primarily designed for aspiring teachers interested in teaching at the elementary and middle school levels through grade six.

The Preliminary Multiple-Subject Credential authorizes candidates to seek initial employment as a multiple-subject (elementary) teacher, but does not authorize ongoing teaching service. Candidates will need to complete professional preparation within five years of the date of issuance of the Preliminary Credential in order to continue ongoing teaching service as an educator. In order to complete the Professional credential, candidates are required to enroll in a commission-accredited SB 2042 Professional Teacher Induction Program usually called a Beginning Teacher Support and Assessment (BTSA) program
