Accelerated Secondary Education Program

The Accelerated Secondary Education Program (ASP) is for individuals interested in teaching students in middle and high schools. ASP offers a license sequence for individuals wanting to teach mathematics, science, social studies, and English.
Our program is geared toward:

  • Working adults & career changers
  • Recent college graduates interested in teaching
  • Emergency-Licensed (Tier 1) teachers already working in schools

Our 22 credit initial license sequence can be applied toward a 34 credit Master’s of Arts in Education.  Classes are offered face to face in the evenings and weekends and incorporate blended/online delivery formats.  


I came into the Accelerated Secondary Program with a strong desire to teach. The outstanding faculty at Edgewood College was able to take that raw passion for teaching and make me a competent professional in the classroom. Before I had even finished the program, I had been offered and accepted a job at an area high school that is the perfect fit for me. I know that I owe a great deal of credit for landing this position to the outstanding faculty of Edgewood College, as well as to my classmates in ASP, who have helped me to learn so much about teaching and about myself over the last 16 months.
