Blending east coast edge with west coast ease, along with a touch of Southern hospitality, St. Louis is a city that is large enough to offer all the diverse entertainment and dynamic energy of a big city, with the soul of a small town. 

St. Louis is much more than its world-famous sports teams and acclaimed (and free!) museums, parks, and monuments; it is a city that pushes teachers to bring out the best in their students, lead them to their highest achievements, and set them on trajectories that will lead them to unlimited life paths. Below are some other considerations to help you decide if St. Louis is a good fit for you. 

Eligibility Requirements

In St. Louis, corps members must obtain a provisional certificate, which is valid throughout their two-year teaching commitment. Provisional certificates are nonrenewable and will ultimately lead to full initial certification, received after two years. Learn more about certification and training in St. Louis.

Community Supports

The Collective is Teach For America's affinity group for corps members and alumni of color.

White People Work is an affinity group for corps members and alumni who identify as white. Members explore the ways in which they can participate in the movement for racial and social equity.
