WHAT IS THE AMERICAN BOARD?

The American Board, also known as The American Board for Certification of Teacher Excellence (ABCTE), is a non-profit organization dedicated to placing qualified teachers in the classroom. We offer an online teacher certification program that is much more affordable than returning to school for your Master’s degree. Plus, the American Board’s program is flexible and can be completed at your own pace. In fact, many of our students work a full-time job while completing our program!
