ARCTELL is an advanced educator preparation program approved by the CT State Board of Education. It was developed by ACES in response to the statewide shortage of qualified, certified PK-12 teachers in the areas of Bilingual Education and Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) in CT.

Teachers who complete the program of study, as well as CT standardized testing requirements, will earn cross-endorsement #111, TESOL PK-12. Participants may also be eligible to earn a bilingual education cross-endorsement in their content area. In addition, all certified teachers who earn cross-endorsement #111 through the ARCTELL program are eligible for CT adult education endorsement #088, English to Non-English Speaking Adults.

You must be currently certified as a teacher in the state of CT to apply for this program.
