About the Intern Certification

Intern Certification is a Pennsylvania-approved alternate-route teacher certificate that allows individuals to hold full-time professional teaching positions for up to three years once the Intern Certification is issued. 

DeSales is currently the ONLY approved Special Education PreK-12 Intern Certification Program in Pennsylvania.

This program is best suited for candidates who hope to work in areas of teacher shortage such as in special education, mathematics, the sciences, and world languages. 

However, candidates in English and the social sciences have gained immediate employment after intern certification.
