The Propel Teacher Residency Program (PTRP) is a fully funded alternative route to teacher certification that trains, supports, and certifies individuals in either Secondary math or science so they can provide high-quality education for children.  If you’ve always had a desire to teach but didn’t know where to start, this may be the right place for you.

Program Overview:

 In the first year of the program, each resident receives a generous $2,000 monthly stipend and full scholarship  to Point Park University.  Point Park University is the only Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE)-recognized institution in Pennsylvania that offers an American Board for the Certification of Teacher Excellence (ABCTE) program. ABCTE is a nonprofit organization dedicated to putting qualified professionals in the classroom through a state-approved alternative teacher certification program.

Residents work alongside a Propel educator during the week, receive individualized coaching support and professional development from the Residency Team, and have one day a week dedicated to ABCTE and Point Park coursework.
