As technology continues to evolve, so does the definition of a classroom. Education is happening not only face-to-face, but also in online and hybrid instructional settings.

To prepare those who currently hold a master's degree for this continually evolving phenomenon, American Public University offers an online graduate certificate in K-12 Online Learning.

Our concentrated, six-course program helps those who want to advance their knowledge to address this emerging need.

With American Public University's graduate certificate in K-12 Online Learning, you'll be better prepared to:

  • Analyze online teaching approaches to make them more effective.
  • Evaluate ethical and legal issues related to online learning.
  • Apply the proper technology tools to facilitate online classes.
  • Create educational activities that align with the diverse needs of online learners.

APU, itself an online university, is uniquely qualified to offer this program. As a student pursuing this certificate, you will engage with scholar-practitioner faculty and fellow students in an engaging and collaborative online environment.


This graduate certificate program does not lead to state certification or licensure, nor can it be used to maintain state licensure or certification. We strongly encourage you to explore your state-specific requirements prior to applying here in order to make an informed decision.
