The Alternative Licensure Program is designed to allow students who have a Bachelor’s Degree in any subject, to take classes to allow them to become a teacher (this is the alternative route). We offer four licenses at Santa Fe Community College (SFCC): Early Childhood, Elementary, Secondary and Special Education.
The SFCC Teacher Academy mission is to professionally prepare critically reflective and culturally responsive educators who expect and support the success of each and every student, and to significantly contribute to the quality of education in New Mexico and beyond.
SFCC Teacher Academy graduates will serve as advocates for social justice and as leaders and change agents for the transformation of education. Our teacher candidates will fully engage in the cultural, political and economic life of our democratic society, and by example, will inspire students, families, school districts, and the communities they serve.
