Teacher Intern Program

Wilson’s Teacher Intern Program (TIP) is a highly regarded, affordable and expeditious path for women and men with bachelor’s degrees to become teachers. Approved by the Pennsylvania Department of Education in 1985, TIP makes earning Instructional Level I certificates as accessible as possible for highly motivated, working adults. Get your teacher certification in PA today!

W e currently offer Level I certification in Early Childhood education (PreK-4); in middle level (4-8) for English, mathematics, science and social studies; in K-12 for Health & Physical Education and Spanish and in secondary education (7-12) for English, biology, chemistry, mathematics, and social studies. Depending on the area of teaching, credits from undergraduate degrees can apply toward certification. All students take core and methods education classes, state-required testing and practice teaching.  

We know that most of our Teacher Intern Program students are working full or part time and have family responsibilities. That’s why we schedule classes at three convenient locations: the Carlisle Army War College, Cumberland Valley School District between Carlisle and Mechanicsburg, and the Wilson College campus in Chambersburg. We offer most classes in the evening from 6:15 to 9 p.m. The entire program can vary in consideration of each student’s previous academic preparation. Tuition is reasonable and financial aid is available for those who qualify.

Both public school districts and private schools are eager to hire TIP graduates. Employers know that our graduates are mature, passionate about teaching and well-prepared for the daily challenges of the classroom.
