Capital Area Pathways to Teaching (CAPT)

The CAIU is leading the way on a ground-breaking, innovative new program that aims to raise up the next generation of educational leaders. 

In partnership with BloomBoard, a talent development provider that helps school districts with educator pipeline, advancement, and retention solutions, CAIU has created the Capital Area Pathways to Teaching (CAPT) program.

One Program, Three Degrees

The degrees available through the CAPT Program are offered by various accredited institutions of higher education (IHEs) located in different states. All of the IHEs are part of the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA), which is an agreement among member states, districts and territories that establishes comparable national standards for interstate offerings of postsecondary distance education courses and programs. It is intended to make it easier for students to take online courses offered by postsecondary institutions based in another state. However, please note that NC-SARA does not cover professional licensure or certification. Eligibility for licensure and/or certification involves more than successful degree completion. Please refer to the PA Department of Education's website regarding teacher certification to confirm the additional requirements for certification, which may vary depending upon the IHE that issues your degree.
