Elementary, Secondary Education, and Educational Leadership

 
Elementary Student Teacher Helping Students,

Prescott College mission is to prepare teachers and administrators who have the knowledge and skills as well as the cultural and ecological sensitivities needed to bring about meaningful and transformational learning for all students. We believe that education plays an important role in the shaping of a responsible citizenry that is invested in a just democracy.
If you pursue teacher or principal certification at Prescott College you will work with a group of faculty members who are scholar/practitioners. The College has intentionally recruited faculty who are experienced educators who bring both academic background and professional experience to their teaching. Prescott College faculty are committed to school reform and to your professional growth and development. All Prescott College programs, including professional preparation programs, are focused on the unique needs of each student and, to some degree, are self-directed. You will progress with a cohort of peers through the program collaborating, dialoguing, and debating either online or face to face during the mandatory residencies.

PROFESSIONAL PREPARATION PROGRAM OFFERINGS

These non-thesis professional preparation programs offered under the M.Ed. degree comply with the Arizona Department of Education requirements. Students from other states are able to mold their program based on their state’s requirements for certification. The practical component of these certification programs is completed in the student’s home state.

Educational Leadership/Principalship

This new 36 semester credit hour online program is designed for self-motivated and self-directed educators who want to lead schools and who are smart, moral and clear in their intentions. We seek men and women of integrity who deeply care about others, who want to lead other educators in service to children and communities. Prescott College graduates will be well-prepared educational leaders who will think critically, who will be aware of issues related to the environment and social justice and who will apply the best of current theory and research to the intensely practical work of leading schools.
