Teacher education

We have offered high quality teacher education courses and strong school district partnerships for over 100 years in the Four Corners region. Each year about 50 students graduate from our personalized programs. Most students continue to teach in the region or return to their home towns to begin their teaching careers.

Teacher certification

Most of our teacher education programs meet requirements for your Colorado teacher license. Some of our programs are designed to bring your existing teacher certification to a new level or prepare you as an educator in settings that don't require licensure. We even offer graduate level alternative teacher certification programs.
