Education Programs

  My experience at Wilson College was extremely rewarding and memorable. WilsJessaca Campbellon's professors truly care about their students and embody the pedagogy of Education at its roots. The educator I am today is shaped by the skills, tools, and resources that I obtained at Wilson and I have much to be thankful for."

Certification

Candidates for certification must pass all required PECT/PRAXIS tests. Adjustments can be made to accommodate the requirements of other states except those which require a year of graduate study.

The Pennsylvania certificate is also valid in 46 states with which interstate agreements exist. An Instructional Level I certificate is valid for six years of service, during which time the following requirements must be completed: an approved induction program, 24 credit hours of post-baccalaureate course work from a state approved, four-year degree-granting institution, and three years of satisfactory full-time service under contract in Pennsylvania. A person then qualifies for Level II certification. Once a student has attained initial certification, s/he must adhere to Pennsylvania’s Act 48, which requires all teachers to complete six credit hours or 180 clock hours of professional development every five years in order to retain a valid certificate. This applies to both Instructional I and Instructional II certificates.
