Academy for Catholic Teaching
Academy of Catholic Teaching (ACT) is an innovative three-year collaborative program that creates pathways for inspired education students to teach by example in San Diego's K-12 Catholic schools.
ACT is designed to provide K-12 school teacher in Catholic schools with rigorous coursework, field experiences that build towards earning a Dual Teaching Credential (MEd in Curriculum and Instruction with a Multiple Subject or Single Subject Credential and Education Specialist Credential), involvement within the Catholic community, and spiritual development.

At SOLES, all masters and doctoral students participate in an international experience designed to support the growth of cultural competency. Our goal is to inform best practices in working with culturally diverse populations locally, nationally and globally. International experiences are approved by each student's faculty advisor and can be credit based or non-credit based activities.
