Founded in 2009 by the San Joaquin County Office of Education (SJCOE), Teachers College of San Joaquin (TCSJ) is the only WASC accredited institution of higher education that is a department within a county office of education. TCSJ provides a variety of options for those who wish to pursue a career in the field of education: Teaching and Administrative Service Credentials, Induction (teaching and administrative), Master's Degree program in Education, and non-degree programs.

We believe that all of you bring rich and diverse experiences to Teachers College of San Joaquin. We also believe that if we are going to create schools and curriculum that meet the challenges mentioned above, that it is important for administrators, Career and Technical Education teachers, and academic teachers to spend time thinking together.

Your unique set of experiences will be recognized and valued, however as a TCSJ student, your prior assumptions will be challenged by faculty, the research and by your peers. Rise up to this opportunity—think new, be bold, create! You will be encouraged to examine old ideas—keeping what makes sense and redesigning what doesn't. Know that your contribution will be valued.
