TFASC Schools and Classrooms

Do you believe that every child deserves an excellent education?

TFASC removes barriers to enter the teaching profession, provides pathways to teacher certification, and offers intensive support that enables you to make a significant impact in your classroom and community.

By joining our movement, you make a commitment to teach at an under-resourced school in South Carolina – partnering with your school community to ensure a better future for your students. You also gain access to our coaching and training resources and a statewide network of like-minded educational equity advocates.


Do you need to hire or train teachers at your school district?

We’re your partner to hire highly talented teachers at your school district, then provide them with support and pathways to certification as needed. Nine out of 10 principals surveyed said that TFASC teachers were effective at delivering academic instruction, maintained a positive learning environment, and fit well within their school’s culture.

We also offer new teacher development training for your first- and second-year educators. This training will build their competencies, resulting in higher student achievement and teacher retention.


Do you think public education is a wise investment?

Many public schools are facing a teacher shortage crisis in South Carolina. But together, we can help solve it. 

Your financial support helps us to recruit, prepare, and retain more high-quality teachers across the state. When you donate to TFASC, 90 cents of every dollar are invested in expanding our teacher training programs to reach more students and communities. Excellent teachers are the key to improving education and preparing all students to be college- or career-ready.

Our Decade of Impact

Since our inception in 2011, TFASC has worked intentionally to recruit, prepare, and retain high-quality teachers who transform student outcomes in the state’s most under-resourced schools and school districts.
