Mission Statement

ABCTE recruits, prepares, certifies and supports dedicated professionals to improve student achievement through quality teaching.

Description

Founded in 2001 via a grant from the U.S. Department of Education, ABCTE addresses the need for knowledgeable and dedicated teachers in every classroom. We offer a flexible and cost-effective certification program designed for career changers. ABCTE opens new pathways into the classroom, helping states, districts and communities meet the needs of their students.

95% of principals rated our teachers to be as effective or more effective than their peers.

100% of principals surveyed would be willing to hire an ABCTE-certified teacher.

24% of ABCTE candidates are minorities and 32% are pursuing certification in math and science.

We have a rigorous certification program where only 40% of candidates complete the program.

ABCTE teacher retention is 93% over the first two years compared to 84% nationwide.
