K-12 District Partnerships

Strategic education solutions

When your staff thrives your district will, too.

We support you in your quest to attract and retain inspiring teacher-leaders by supplying free professional development courses and flexible degree programs along with special tuition pricing. That’s why it’s time to partner with Capella University.

Free professional development solutions

Professional development helps teachers reach their highest potential. Capella’s 20+ free PD courses are all online and self-paced, so teachers can learn more about maximizing the power of instructional technology in their classrooms, including topics like personalized learning, problem-based learning (PBL), and instructional coaching on a schedule that works for them. Benefits of these free courses include:

Online flexibility

PD is available anytime, from any device, so your staff can learn when it’s convenient for them.

Immediate application

Teachers can gain knowledge, learn strategies, and create artifacts that can be applied immediately in the classroom.

Earn free clock hours

Your staff can earn 25-50 clock hours toward required professional development, for free.*

Graduate credit available

Staff can apply professional development toward earning graduate credit from Capella.*

*Additional requirements and fees apply when pursuing graduate credit. State regulations vary regarding salary benefits and continuing education. It is the learner’s responsibility to understand and comply with requirements for their state, which may include pre-approval of qualified professional development opportunities.

Education degrees and programs

Our master’s in education offerings help teachers affect positive change in the classroom and improve student engagement. In addition, our innovative, online Ph.D., EdD, and EdS programs offer pathways to leadership.

District discounts and scholarships

Capella provides special pricing for your district, including a 10% tuition discount, exclusive grants, and scholarships your teachers may be eligible for once we begin our partnership.

Two online learning formats

Help your district shine by giving your teachers access to flexible learning formats that fit their lifestyle. Students can choose either FlexPath or GuidedPath for the MEd program; all other programs follow GuidedPath.
