This document provides information on Latin Teacher Certification in the 50 States and the District of Columbia, as of December 2017. It replaces the 2011 document prepared by Hunter College students Manuel Andino and Christopher Amanna, under the supervision of Ronnie Ancona. The SCS is grateful to the many SCS legates and other members of the profession who have helped update this important resource, and to summer intern Oliver Hughes and graduate student assistant Stephanie Crooks, who have worked on this resource.

Teacher certification requirements can vary from state to state. In general, however, most states require either a BA or BS, the completion of a state-approved teacher education program and student teaching practicum, and a passing score on the state’s content-area exam. Where possible, the document links directly to the certification routes outlined on Department of Education websites. Those interested in becoming certified to teach Latin in a particular state or to transfer an existing certificate are encouraged to contact that state’s Department of Education.
