K-12 Teaching Licenses

​Teaching Licenses (K-12)​​​

The Instructional I Certificate is issued by the Pennsylvania Department of Education to those Grove City College graduates who have completed an approved College program, been recommended by the College for certification and successfully fulfilled Pennsylvania Teacher Certification requirements. These requirements include:

·       Required state testing

·       Act 33, Act 34 and Act 114 clearances and other state requirements

It should be noted that graduation and certification are not synonymous terms. All students seeking certification must apply to the Department of Education for admission to the certification program. Admission, retention and recommendation for certification are contingent upon the approval of the Department of Education and the faculty of the student’s area of certification.

Changes in state licensure requirements may necessitate changes in course requirements for students, particularly for those who extend their studies beyond the typical four-year sequence. Careful attention to Department of Education course scheduling recommendations is important for staying current with certification requirements.
