The Education Program in the future will specialize in the preparation of teachers for classical and other schools not requiring State certification. To facilitate this end, the Department offers an elementary- or secondary-level apprenticeship that generally qualifies students to teach in private schools only (as well as charter schools not requiring certification). Students wishing to follow this path may apply to the Hillsdale College Liberal Arts Teacher Apprenticeship. The decision date on applications for the upcoming year is June 1.
Important Note on Certification
Students entering in 2009 and before are eligible for State certification through the College. Future entering classes will have instead other avenues toward certification available to them. Students entering during the fall of 2010 or later will not be certifiable via recommendation by Hillsdale College. The College anticipates that its authority to recommend for certification will expire at the end of 2013. Students must complete all coursework, directed teaching, and other requirements no later than June 15, 2013, if they wish to be recommended for certification by Hillsdale College. Only students admitted to the Teacher Education Program by June 30, 2011, will be eligible for State certification through the College. Students admitted to the Teacher Education Program prior to June 30, 2011, are bound by the rules in the College Catalog that were effective on the date of their admission to the program.
