Welcome to ACT Houston

Welcome to ACT Houston’s website where you can easily access all three locations: Houston, 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, the well-known ACT Houston 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. 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. 

Every aspect of the ACT program is designed to provide you with the best research-based materials 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.
