Part 3: Four reference letters

  • You will need to obtain references from 2 professors, 1 peer, and 1 rector, residence hall director, campus minister, or service project leader who can attest to your success in living and working in a community atmosphere.
  • References include the following:
    • An evaluation of the five dispositions successful ACE Teachers possess (Zeal, Coachability, Persistence, Servant Leadership, & Hunger for Spiritual Growth)
    • A letter of reference
  • You will be asked to provide the name and contact information of each reference in the online application. An electronic request will automatically be sent to each reference so that he or she might submit all materials online. If a reference lacks email capability, the application will direct you on how to submit the materials by mail.

Part 4: Basic Skills Requirement

Per the Indiana Department of Education, all applicants must provide proof of basic skills for the teaching licensure process. You have multiple options to meet this requirement, including ACT, SAT, or Praxis. You can find the following score minimum requirements here. If your ACT, SAT, or Praxis scores do not meet the minimum requirements, we will ask that you submit GRE scores instead. Please refer to the Application Instructions below for information regarding how to upload test scores to your application.
