School Wifi Backdoor

My school wifi blocks all laptops from the school wifi that does not have a certificate, I am running Ubuntu 14.04 and was wondering you could tell me how to get in using a "backdoor" or another possible way (maybe finding a certificate online and using that)

I don't think that your question will get the disred reponse. In fact you may want to ask that question at another forum that is more forgiving, as this type of question is not permitted at LQ.

If you're supposed to be using this wifi ask the school for a certificate. If not don't ask us to help get you jailed.

That seems downright mean of your school. Why would they do such a thing?
