Estrella Mountain Community College offers the only online Gifted Education Endorsement Program in Arizona for certificated personnel.
The six-course online program grants flexibility for educators, and teachers who complete the program will be more highly trained to meet the individual learning needs found in every classroom.
This program is part of the Teacher Education Institute at EMCC, which helps students succeed by offering educational networks and professional opportunities within their selected field(s) of study.
The Gifted Education Endorsement Program was developed for continuing education and professional development. Upon successful completion of the program, graduates will earn a Certificate of Completion (CCL) from EMCC as well as a Gifted Endorsement through the Arizona Department of Education. Current teachers may also be able to move horizontally on their school district’s salary schedule.
