Web-Centric Alternative Certification Program

If you are interested in teaching in Alvin ISD or any other Texas school system but do not have a teaching certificate, an alternative certification program may be an attractive option. The Web-Centric Alternative Certification Program (WCACP) allows individuals to begin the process of obtaining a teaching license from the comfort of their own homes. This program, conducted 100% online, allows future teachers to work at their own pace toward receiving certification at any school district in the state of Texas.

The program uses online curriculum, chat sessions, and videoconferencing to prepare students for a one-year teaching internship that will be completed at a school district, accredited private school, or charter school. Students may enroll in some of the modules concurrently with their internships, so candidates who work on the program full-time can receive their certification in a little over a year.

To receive admission into the WCACP, candidates must have a bachelor's degree from an accredited institution. The program requires a minimum 2.5 overall GPA from undergraduate studies or a 2.5 GPA from a student’s last 60 hours of undergraduate or graduate level work.
