Welcome to the School of Education
"Preparing Skilled, Reflective Decision Makers"
A career in education is multi-faceted, offering challenges, personal satisfaction, and interaction with individuals from diverse backgrounds. Faculty and staff in the GSW School of Education are dedicated to the preparation of future educators and professional growth through graduate work in Education. Partner school systems provide real-life experiences in the preparation of teachers so that graduates of the GSW School of Education are ready to meet the opportunities to positively impact P-12 student learning.
The School of Education at Georgia Southwestern State University is accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). All initial teacher preparation programs are approved by the Georgia Professional Standards Commission (GaPSC).
The administration, faculty, and staff of the School of Education at Georgia Southwestern State University proudly announce that the Continuous Improvement Commission of The Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) has continued the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) at the initial teacher preparation level. Program faculty are especially excited to announce the Commission cited no areas for improvement relative to any of the NCATE standards.
A special thanks to our partner school network, colleagues, alumni, and student candidates for supporting our teacher preparation programs. The next accreditation visit will use the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) standards and is scheduled for Spring 2020.
