Approved by the Pennsylvania Department of Education in 1985, Wilson’s TCP program allows those who already have bachelor’s degrees to become certified to teach. Three distinct pathways fall under TCP: the TIP, FLIP (Foreign Language Intern Pathway) and TOP (Teacher Online Pathway) programs. A variety of certifications are available, covering all grades and including specialized areas such as special education.
