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.

We even offer graduate level alternative teacher certification programs.
