The Christian School Teacher’s Certificate (CSTC) is an Edifide Christian Educators Association (edifide logo) certificate, administered by the Credentials Committee. Endorsed by Edvance, it is a unique certificate in that it attempts to integrate theory and practice in Christian education. Therefore, it is important that all teachers in Edvance-affiliated schools be required to obtain this certificate as a priority for their professional development.
