Teacher Licensing

Teachers employed by charter schools have the same teacher licensure requirements as traditional public schools. There are several routes a teacher can travel to become a licensed teacher in the state of Utah. 

Excelsior Academy employs teachers who have an LEA-Specific educator license.

 For more information on the difference between an LEA-Specific License, an Associate License, and a Professional License, visit our LEA-Specific Policy.
