Saint Martin’s University will hold an information session about the Secondary Teacher Alternate Route, or the STAR program, from 6:30-8 p.m. Wednesday at the Norman Worthington Conference Center, 5300 Pacific Ave. SE, Lacey.
The intensive one-year program, designed for students who already have an undergraduate degree and at least one year of work experience, prepares them for teaching middle and high school.
“This is much faster than taking the regular teacher certification route provided by most universities, which take one and a half to two years to complete,” said Ann Gentle, STAR program director and Saint Martin’s faculty member.
Applications are being accepted for the next session, which begins in June.
