All previously non-certified corps members will enroll in a two-year teaching certification program through our partner universities (Marquette University, Cardinal Stritch University, or Alverno College) for a reduced price. Through these programs, you will work towards your certification while teaching and have the option of working towards a master’s degree. Enrollment details and requirements of certification are typically communicated in the spring of each year, including exact tuition expenses. All quoted figures are based on the current year’s expenses.
Corps members will be responsible for financing their certification program. Each of our partner programs provides financial aid options for all of their students. In addition, TFA will offer graduate school grants to corps members based on need.
Current (2014-2015 school year) Certification program costs over the entire two-year program (this is before the application of the Americorps award).
|Program||Certification Cost||Master's Degree Cost|
|Cardinal Stritch University||$17,080||$20,008|
Just across the 6th Street Bridge from downtown you'll find Walker's Point, home to Milwaukee's Latin Cuisine District. This historic area is also where you'll find Harley-Davidson, the Great Lakes Distillery, and Rockwell Automation. Take a walk down National Street to the heart of Walker's Point and you will find one of Milwaukee's best locally-owned cafes, The National Cafe and Takeaway, where you can enjoy a delicious serving of French toast (gluten-free available!) and a strong cup of coffee, and browse the local art available for sale. Just across the street from Milwaukee Public Schools' Bradley Tech High School is Casa Romero Renewal Center, a bilingual urban retreat center for individuals, groups, and nonprofits who share the value of providing "the voice of those who have no voice."
