With Accelerate Online, you will be on track to full Texas secondary (grades 8-12) teacher certification. If you have a science, mathematics, social science, English, or language arts related degree, you can be prepared and teaching in a secondary classroom in 18 months.

As an Accelerate Online student, you’ll access web-based learning modules from Texas A&M’s eEmpowerment Zone (elearning center). All modules are self-paced with guidance from eZone facilitators. While completing the online instruction, you’ll spend 40 clock-hours in a supervised “early field experience” in a secondary school.

After your field experience, we will help you find a two semester paid internship as an entry-level teacher in a high-need school. Throughout your internship, a mentor and university supervisor will support you.
