The online Secondary Math Endorsement Academy consists of 8 classes that meet in virtual, synchronous sessions twice a week in the evenings, with additional asynchronous work required throughout the week. Our classes are developed with teacher's schedules in mind.
This unique program helps Washington state teachers, regardless of where they live, prepare for the required NES exam, offering a rigorous and affordable pathway to earning a Secondary Math endorsement. Teachers can apply their learning in the classroom immediately and adjust their techniques as the academy progresses.
Brought to you by the College of Education's office of Professional & Continuing Education, courses are taught by expert practitioners including certified current and former classroom teachers from a variety of Washington school districts. Seattle University faculty oversee the courses to ensure that the materials and teaching are current and relevant.
