Catalyst Certified Schools

Certification is one way that individual educators, schools, and districts may demonstrate their commitment to implementing The Catalyst Approach.

Individual educators earn certification when they demonstrate all of the Catalyst Foundational Skills within one lesson. When 80% of the licensed staff in a school earn individual certification, the school becomes a Catalyst Certified School.

A Catalyst Demonstration School goes beyond the Certified School achievement by developing a core team of Demonstration Teachers and refining the other areas of the school's systems.
