American College of Education Partners With Florida Consortium of Public Charter Schools
Chicago, Illinois - Teachers who are members of the Florida Consortium of Public Charter Schools (FCPCS) now have a unique opportunity to complete an online master's degree at a reduced tuition rate. In honor of National Charter Schools Week, May 3 – 9, American College of Education, a Chicago-based, accredited online college, announces a new partnership with FCPCS, one of the largest charter school associations in the nation. Through the partnership, all FCPCS members are eligible to receive a $350 tuition grant to be used toward the cost of an online master's degree at American College of Education if they enroll by June 30.
"Cost is one of the biggest obstacles teachers face as they work toward career advancement by pursuing a master's degree. We are proud to be able to offer these tuition grants to FCPCS teachers to help them reduce the cost of our high quality, already affordable online master's degree programs," said Dr. Vernon Johnson, an executive vice president at American College of Education. "And because all of our courses are offered exclusively online, our online master's degree students can take their classes anytime, anywhere they have an Internet connection, thus reducing the obstacle of accessibility," he added.
"American College of Education's tuition reduction program, available exclusively to FCPCS member teachers during National Charter School Week, provides a great opportunity for teachers to grow professionally," said Robert Haag, President, FCPCS. "It is always exciting to introduce new vendors and special promotions that help our member schools, their teachers and, ultimately, the students they serve."
The accredited American College of Education offers its master's degree programs exclusively online. Teachers who want to move into education leadership positions may choose from a number of online master's programs at the College: M.Ed. in Education Leadership, M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction, M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction with ESL Specialization, M.Ed. in Curriculum with Bilingual Specialization, and the newly approved M.Ed. in Educational Technology.
Tuition grant recipients must meet the admission criteria of American College of Education, an accredited online college. The GRE is not required. In addition to the FCPCS tuition grants, American College of Education is also currently offering a number of student grants to help teachers with tuition payments. To be eligible for the FCPCS tuition grant, members must enroll by June 30. Educators interested in enrolling in the College and applying for a tuition grant should contact the American College of Education Enrollment Department at 1-800-280-0307 or visit the College's website at www.ace.edu.
