Teach Toledo

Diverse Teachers Matter

Teach Toledo provides an opportunity to earn an Associate’s degree in six semesters, graduate, and then continue for six semesters to earn a Bachelor’s Degree in Education, meeting requirements for Ohio teaching licensure.  

Teach Toledo celebrates urban schools and urban communities. Coursework prepares future teachers to capitalize on the cultural assets in diverse urban neighborhoods and to recognize and challenge systemic racism. 

Teach Toledo will accept a limited number of students to join cohort II for classes starting January 2020. Students need to have completed Composition I with a grade of C or better and need to meet other requirements for admission into the Teach Toledo pathway.

Interested students should complete the UToledo admission application using the link on this page, and should also complete the Request Information form below.
