  • 9-months (or 36 weeks) with a part-time schedule

  • 13-months (or 50 weeks) with a flex schedule


TPCA strives to promote a healthy balance between school and your personal life; this is why our academy runs on a 4-day workweek.


Schedules run from Wednesday through Saturday.

Full-time: 9:15 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Is work or life matters getting in the way of your dream job? Our Flex-Schedule is an alternative to the schedules above. This schedule provides you with some flexibility to create your own schedule, so long as you complete 15-hours per week.

Program emphasis includes, but is not limited to:


  • Mentoring: To be a successful educator is to be a great mentor and know the responsibilities that come with the title. As a student instructor, you will have the opportunity to work alongside and mentor our students, respective to your current license(s), to see how your mentoring skills have progressed through the program.


  • Goal Setting: As a future educator, teaching students how to reach their goals is an important aspect of teaching.  That is why it is a heavy focus in our curriculum.

  • Culture Training: Presenting information to students is the easy part of being an educator, but creating a conducive learning environment can be difficult.  You will learn how to foster creative learning.

  • One-on-One Coaching: Feedback is a gift. As a student instructor, you will receive one-on-one coaching sessions with an educator who is eager to help you improve your communication and mentoring skills.

  • And much more!
