City Teaching Alliance (formerly Urban Teachers) is a rigorous, comprehensive teacher development program that integrates the intensive support, critical skills, and high-value credentials necessary for success in historically underserved and excluded urban classrooms, and across an educator’s career. We improve educational and life outcomes of children in urban schools by preparing culturally responsive, effective career educators who accelerate student achievement and disrupt systems of racial and socioeconomic inequity.
In partnership with American University, City Teaching Alliance participants earn a Master's of Arts in Teaching. The curriculum is hands-on, practical, and specifically designed for urban schools. Our program emphasizes literacy and math skills and includes coursework and dual certification in special education and a content area—ensuring our teachers can meet the needs of all children. We work with school districts in Baltimore, Dallas, Philadelphia, and Washington, DC to charter management organizations that have some of the highest starting teacher pay in the nation.
