Why Choose EducateVA

Since 2004, the EducateVA Career Switcher program has trained over 1,800 teachers.

EducateVA  is ideal for people who have already earned a bachelor’s degree or higher, have three or more years of full-time work experience, and are looking for a practical, affordable route to becoming a teacher in the Commonwealth.

Through a combination of online and face-to-face Saturday classes, EducateVA is a flexible option for individuals working full or part-time, while they complete the first level of the program.

At the core of the EducateVA program is the professional feedback provided by our instructors and program staff.  Our team is made up of leaders in the field of education, which includes veteran classroom teachers and administrators, from all levels.  The faculty will support each new teacher through the critical first year in the classroom and beyond.
