Why Choose the Teacher Pathways Program?

Every young person needs an advocate, a helping hand and a listening ear along the path to success. At New Visions Charter High Schools, our talented, dedicated teachers are a cornerstone to providing our students equal access to educational opportunities. We know that not every excellent teacher takes a direct path to the classroom. The Teacher Pathways program was designed to support individuals who don’t currently have a teaching credential to become teachers in our New Visions Charter High Schools.


As a Pathways Teacher, you will become an integral part of your students’ success. In the span of two years, we’ll help you to attain your goal of becoming an effective, certified educator. You will benefit from one-on-one support from an experienced mentor teacher, and earn your master’s degree in secondary education for grades 7-12 and your initial state teacher certification.
