TEACH-NOW Graduate School of Education is a fully accredited online university that enables Veterans, Active Duty members and spouse(s) who already have a baccalaureate degree to obtain a Teaching certificate within 9 months or a Master’s of Education Degree in as fast as one year.

Regardless of how long you or your spouse have served in the military, we want to thank you for your service.

TEACH-NOW created the Veterans Initiative to help you find what’s next.

The TEACH-NOW Veterans Initiative

TEACH-NOW wants to provide you with an opportunity to leverage your skills while continuing to serve your country by leading our children to a bright future. Our online certification program can help you to become a certified teacher in as little as 9 months, while equipping you with the skills to be at the top of the teaching profession.

Our programs are built on a highly interactive, collaborative online learning platform in which an instructor works with 10-15 candidates, forming a learning cohort that meets in a virtual classroom once a week. Additionally, we offer flexibility through monthly enrollment periods and class scheduling to allow maximum adaptability to participate day or night across multiple time zones. This is an ideal program for PCS and deployment vulnerable candidates.

This fully accredited university meets the stringent requirements for full or partial tuition reimbursement through the U.S Department of Veterans Affairs Educational Benefits (including Post 911 GI Bill) and assistance through the MyCAA Military Spouse Grant Program. The total cost of tuition for the TEACH-NOW Teacher Preparation Certificate Program is $6000 over a period of 9 months and the cost of tuition to obtain the Master’s in Education Degree with Teaching Certificate is $13000 over a period of 12 months.

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs grants TEACH-NOW the eligibility to train beneficiaries, including:

  • Veterans
  • Active duty military
  • Reservists
  • Spouses
  • Adult children
