Accreditation and Program Approval Information

In order to achieve high standards of excellence, we encourage the development of teachers  who are knowledgeable, skillful, caring, inclusive, ethical and professional. The philosophy, goals and purposes of our programs are consistent with professional standards established by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts as required for approval of programs to prepare candidates for teacher licensure and for reciprocal licensure through the Interstate Certification Compact. They are designed to meet or align to national standards, including the standards of the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (now known as CAEP), standards of specialized professional associations, the Five Core Propositions of the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS), and the National Education Association (NEA) Code of Ethics.
