Welcome to ACT Dallas

Welcome to the ACT website where you can easily access our locations: Dallas and Austin. We provide teacher certification for ALL grade levels and ALL content areas.  We offer two routes:  Clinical Teaching (Student Teaching!) 14-week Practicum OR 2-semester Internship!

The most common way for teachers to become certified in Texas is through Alternative Certification.  Since 2003, our well-known program has been accredited by the Texas Education Agency State Board for Educator Certification.

Ours is an accelerated route to teacher certification that is coordinated by experienced classroom teachers and administrators, rather than online instruction.  Select your choice of schedules!  Evening or daytime Institutes are offered throughout the year.  All are taught by master teachers in small-sized classes with face-to-face instruction that is research-based and of the highest quality for new teacher efficacy.

Every aspect of the ACT program is designed to provide you with the best materials, resources, and environment for reaching your goal of becoming a certified teacher.  Plus we provide you with an ongoing network of support that is not available in other programs. 

We are teachers!  Our certification program was developed for teachers by teachers to offer you the highest quality preparation for quickly reaching your goal of becoming a certified teacher and entering the classroom as a full-salaried teacher.
