Since 2018, Columbia College’s Alternative Pathways to Educator Certification (APEC) program has served the local community to help employees of partnering school districts acquire their teaching certification. Through coursework and mentor-led experience in the classroom, APEC participants graduate from Columbia College with a teaching certificate as well as a Master’s in Education. Because of the efficiency, innovation, and dynamic results observed through four years of grant-writing, fundraising, lobbying, and educating, Columbia College’s APEC program has been awarded $3,475,435 to be distributed over 5 years by the United States Department of Education.
