Teacher Preparation Institute

Welcome to the Teacher Preparation Institute website. Teaching is a rewarding profession in many, many ways, and California will need over 20,000 new Kindergarten through Twelve Grade teachers in the next ten years. Being a part of this program provides you with special support and services to help you choose classes, make transfer decisions, and complete a teaching credential in elementary, secondary or special education teaching, as well as an Associate Degree for instructional aides.

Lots of helpful information and people are available to you — on this website and in our
Center located in building 26A, room 1610. Come on in!*

*NOTE: The Teacher Preparation Institute has moved from its current location (26A-1610) to a temporary one for the fall semester.  Our temporary location is in building 17, room 15 (row building, behind the Quick Stop).  A designated study area, computer area, and student lounge will still be available for TPI Members.
