The Alternate Route Program is a nontraditional teacher preparation program designed for aspiring teachers who have not completed a formal teacher preparation program from an accredited institution, but wish to receive necessary training to become a NJ teacher. The Center for Effective School Practices, in conjunction with the NJ Department of Education, offers formal instruction to alternate route provisional teachers seeking certification.

Rutgers University’s 22,000-square-foot Mays Landing facility, a reflection of the success of the Off Campus degree program at Atlantic Cape Community College, is slated to open this Fall. The new building positions Rutgers to accommodate increasing regional demand for programs that enable working adults to continue their education close to home.
Designed to enhance the Rutgers student experience, the $7.5 million, two-story structure will house 11 classrooms, a 20-seat computer lab, student lounges, meeting space, and offices. The new educational facility is located on Atlantic Cape’s picturesque, 537-acre campus, nestled in the New Jersey Pinelands on Black Horse Pike (U.S. Route 322).
The ceremonial ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held in late September.
Center for Government Services courses are in high demand and the next round of courses are scheduled for the fall. Courses – ranging from Financial Management to Public Works - are taught by state and local government professionals and other experts who share their expertise and insights with course participants. Most classes are run throughout the state on an open-enrollment basis. However, on-site programs can be developed for individual local governments upon request.
