Loyola University Maryland and K-12 Teachers Alliance Strengthen Partnership for Maryland Educators

Loyola University Maryland and the K-12 Teachers Alliance (KTA) are excited to be entering their second year of partnership to offer Loyola’s graduate degrees and certificate programs in education to KTA members and their community.

Loyola Maryland sought the assistance of KTA because they wished to bring their well-respected, quality graduate programs in education to a larger audience in the state of Maryland. Through KTA, Loyola is able to offer cohort programs that afford area school districts an opportunity to give their teachers an efficient and cost-effective route to graduate degrees and professional development, following curricula customized for the school systems’ specific needs.

All classes are taught by experienced faculty committed to preparing engaged, versatile educators. Students in the KTA/Loyola cohort partnership programs also enjoy small classes, reduced tuition, and minimal fees. Courses are offered at times convenient for full-time teachers. Cohort program partnerships are established between Loyola University Maryland and specific school systems; participating students enroll individually.

In 2015, Loyola University Maryland rose to a tie for Number 3 among the best regional universities in the North in U.S. News & World Report's "Best Colleges 2015" rankings. This marks more than a decade among the top five institutions in the North region for Loyola.

U.S. News & World Report also recognized Loyola as one of the "Great Schools, Great Prices" for the North region. These 15 schools are recognized for their academic quality and net cost of attendance--the higher the quality of the program and the lower the cost, the better the deal.

"As a Jesuit university, we must ensure that the exceptional educational experience we offer is accessible to all of the outstanding young men and women who choose Loyola,” said Rev. Brian F. Linnane, S.J., Loyola’s president. “Our university takes great pride in offering students the opportunity to thrive in the classroom, on campus, and in the community, and develop into the next leaders who will make a deeply positive impact on our world.”

Joshua S. Smith, Ph.D., Dean of the School of Education has been charged with carrying out the vision of Loyola's School of Education:

“The School of Education will be the leader in preparing educators and researchers to effectively partner with urban schools and community-based organizations as we work together to improve the quality of life for children, families, and the community at large.”

The K-12 Teachers Alliance is proud to partner with Loyola University Maryland to offer these programs to their community of educators in Maryland while helping the School of Education achieve this vision in the coming years.
