Capital Area Pathways to Teaching (CAPT)
CAPT Participants on Signing Day

The CAIU is leading the way on a ground-breaking, innovative new program that aims to raise up the next generation of educational leaders. The Capital Area Pathways to Teaching (CAPT) program partners with BloomBoard, a talent development provider that helps school districts with educator pipeline, advancement, and retention solutions, higher education institutions across Pennsylvania, and local school districts to create pathways to teacher certification.

CAPT has job-embedded and employer funded options for school employees seeking teacher certification to earn associate's and bachelor's degrees in education, or post-baccalaureate teacher certification. This program seeks to remove barriers for paraprofessionals already working in schools to earn teacher certification and help local school districts address teacher staffing needs.
