Georgia Academy for Preparation & Pedagogy Program

The Georgia Teacher Academy for Preparation and Pedagogy (GaTAPP) is a classroom-based teacher preparation option for individuals who have the basic qualifications to teach early childhood, middle-grades, secondary or P-12 education but have not completed a teacher preparation program. The program is not intended to replace regular college teacher education programs. It is, instead, an alternative option for individuals who hold a bachelor's degree or higher from an accredited institute, but who did not complete teacher education preparation requirements as part of their degree programs.

Georgia TAPP seeks to equip teacher-candidates with the skills to ensure a reasonable expectation of initial success in their classrooms, and to put in place a supervised internship/induction program that will help them move toward subsequent mastery of teaching. Please note that we serve only candidates that have secured a full-time teaching position in one of our participating member systems. Those systems are Carrollton City, Carroll County, Coweta County, Harris County, Heard County, Meriwether County, Troup County and Muscogee County
