Teacher Online Pathway (TOP) is an online program for bachelor degree holders who want to work toward a Pennsylvania teaching certificate but don't live within driving distance of the Wilson College campus.
The Teacher Online Pathway (TOP) is recommended for students who live in Pennsylvania and beyond an 80-mile radius of Wilson College. On this pathway, there is an opportunity for students to complete all coursework in one academic year due to the compressed schedule. All of the courses for TOP are offered online, excluding student/intern teaching, so you can complete the work remotely. You must student/intern teach in Pennsylvania.
We currently offer Instructional I certification for TOP in secondary education (7-12) for English, biology, chemistry, mathematics & social studies and PK - 12 business and Spanish.
The tuition for TOP is affordable and financial aid is available for those who qualify.
Both public school districts and private schools are eager to hire Wilson Teacher Certification Pathway students. Employers know that our graduates are mature, passionate about teaching and well-prepared for the daily challenges of the classroom. Wilson is often contacted when openings are available and then works to connect students with those schools.
