Prepared Teachers. Powerful Results.

Praised by the editorial boards of The New York Times and major newspapers in New Orleans and Baton Rouge, TNTP Academy has expanded the pipeline of new teachers for critical shortage subjects in Louisiana while maintaining the highest standards for teacher performance of any preparation program in the country.

Since 2001, TNTP Academy has prepared more than 3,400 teachers for certification in Louisiana and they say our program works. According to Bethany Robicheaux, a Teach for America and TNTP Academy alum who now serves as Lead Data Specialist for the Louisiana Department of Education: "TNTP is the certification program of choice! I’ve had few other professional development opportunities throughout my career that have been as personalized, well executed, and focused on improving student outcomes.”

This endorsement is validated by independent research showing that our graduates are getting results.

For five straight years, a state-sponsored study

of traditional schools of education and alternative teacher-preparation pathways in Louisiana has found that TNTP Academy-trained teachers may outperform even veteran educators in raising student achievement in core content areas, including math, science and English language arts.

In fact, for the past three years, TNTP Academy-trained math teachers achieved a positive impact on student learning that may even outweigh the disadvantages of poverty.
