Pennsylvania Teaching Certifications

Pennsylvania teaching certifications include instructional, intern, and vocational certificates at two different levels for provisional and permanent status. The state offers two different paths, one for graduates of Pennsylvania teaching programs, and the other for teachers educated out of state. Generally, certification requires an approved teacher education program, satisfactory ACTFL or Praxis scores, and minimum GPA and English/Math requirements.

The Pennsylvania Department of Education maintains a list of program guidelines and general standards for state approval of professional educator programs for all specific teaching areas. Online Pennsylvania teacher certification programs may be accepted, depending on the specific area of interest. If you're considering an online program that is not through a state-approved program, you should review the specific program guidelines and contact the department of education if you still have question. Online programs provide a convenient and flexible alternative.
