Welcome, Pennsylvania teachers! 

The Teacher's Academy proudly supports Pennsylvania teachers as Act 48 Academy, LLC. Act 48 of 1999 requires Pennsylvania teachers to accrue 180 hours of professional development every 5 years. The Pennsylvania Department of Education will only accept professional development hours from Act 48 Approved Providers. All of our courses are Act 48 approved! We are the affordable and convenient solution for PA teachers that need all 180 hours or just three. Our courses meet the rigorous demands of the state, are packed with relevant and current teaching strategies and cost less than all other Act 48 providers. We are a company of teachers, helping teachers.

All of the courses provided in this site are Act 48 Approved for PA teachers!
