Montessori Teacher Certification Resources
Guidance for Montessori Certificate Seekers
Thanks to our advocacy efforts, the state of Georgia now recognizes Montessori credentials with a state teaching certificate.
The Georgia Montessori Teaching Certificate qualifies the holder to teach in a Georgia public Montessori classroom.
To qualify, a certificate seeker must:
- Hold a Montessori credential from a MACTE-accredited institution (or present a Letter of Equivalency)
- Have a bachelor's degree
- Pass the appropriate GACE content area test
- Pass the Georgia Educator Ethics Exam
With guidance from the Georgia Professional Standards Commission, we have created a series of checklists to guide certificate seekers through the application process.
