High School & Teacher Requirements
In order to teach A.C.E. courses, a prospective teacher must be approved by the appropriate academic department at LIU Post.
Approval must be secured for each A.C.E. course the prospective teacher plans to teach.
Candidates for approval should possess a master’s degree in the area they wish to teach.
The prospective teacher is nominated by the participating high school in which he or she teaches. Through the high school program coordinator, the prospective teacher sends to the A.C.E. Office the following documents:
- Teacher’s CV
- All undergraduate and graduate transcripts (student copies accepted)
- Any documentation of relevant expertise not evident through the academic transcripts or CV
- Two letters of recommendation
- Teacher’s proposed syllabus for the course labeled with the LIU Post course designation (e.g. ACC 11, BUS 341), the teacher’s name and the name of the high school.
Upon receipt of these documents, the A.C.E. director will request approval from the appropriate academic department at LIU Post.
The A.C.E. director will inform the high school program coordinator and the candidate of the result of the academic department’s review. Once academic approval is secured from LIU Post, the A.C.E. office will request that the registrar establish a section of the proposed course and registrations may be processed.
