Programs and Courses

Our programs and courses reflect today's most urgent needs of educators and school systems and are built upon best practice, research-based learning models and decades of experience.

Most of our programs are cohort-based with set curriculum and program components. Many require individuals to apply for placement into the program.

We offer other programs that are run through the district and are facilitated and taught by Teachers21, such as Supervision for Growth and the Effective Teacher Program. These programs are fully customizable, ensuring the program objectives align with your district's vision, goals, available resources and unique needs.

We also offer a variety of courses and workshops that individuals may enroll in without application or prerequisite. If a number of educators from a single district are interested in enrolling in an open enrollment program, online or graduate course, please contact the office as a group discount may be available.
