Early Childhood Education Pathway Program Pre K-4/Special Education Pre K-12, B.A.

Are you a working professional wanting to earn your degree in education? If so, your path to teacher certification just got easier! If you have an Associate of Arts degree in Early Childhood Education or have completed your first two years of a four-year Early Education program, we have a “pathway” to degree and certification completion designed to meet your needs.

Program Overview

The Bachelor of Arts in Early Childhood Education Pre K-4 provides the necessary training for students interested in teaching at the Pre K-4 level. The Pre K-4 concentration enables students to become certified to teach all courses from Pre K-4 (nursery/age three) through fourth grade (age nine). The Pre K-4/Special Education Pre K-12 enables students to become certified to teach all courses from PreK-4 through 4th grade and also teach in Special Education Pre K-12.

Program Details

Courses in the Early Childhood Education Pathway Program are offered year-round in the evenings, with both in-person and online experiences.  We currently have formal program-to-program agreements in place with a number of colleges that allow you to complete your PreK-4 degree in as little as two years.

If you attended another institution, contact us and we will evaluate your transcripts and work with you to create an individualized completion plan.

We are a T.E.A.C.H.-approved institution so you may be eligible for generous scholarships and compensation!  

Join our family and continue your path towards teacher certification.
