Opportunities for teachers who would like to qualify to teach Dual Enrollment Classes
Arizona Teachers Academy
The Arizona Teachers Academy (ATA) is a program to help pay for tuition and fees for those students in a state university or community college Educator Preparation Program (EPP). The scholarship covers tuition and mandatory fees after a student has accepted all other non-loan aid. This includes current teachers who would like to become certified to teach dual enrollment.
NAU and ASU recently developed their websites and launched programs that allow high school teachers access to the Arizona Teachers Academy scholarships to become (or maintain) dual enrollment credentialed.
