The National Council on Teacher Quality (NCTQ) has ranked both the elementary and secondary education programs in CCU's School of Education as the top education programs in the State of Colorado, and in the 98th percentile of all education programs, nationwide.

Connect. Educate. Inspire.

The School of Education in CCU's College of Undergraduate Studies offers degrees in education designed to train and equip students as part of the next generation of teachers for both public schools and private schools.

Our Christ-centered educational model is unique among education schools in Colorado, training graduates to become outstanding educators committed to impacting the next generation for Christ.

All CCU education students must complete 800 hours of field experience, which will begin during a student's freshman year. This training occurs through a combination of classroom and experiential learning. CCU has professional development partnerships with local elementary, middle, and high schools where students can work with exemplary teachers to gain expert experience.

Throughout the undergraduate education program, students will be taught and mentored by exceptional professors licensed as teachers or administrators in Colorado. They know what it's like to be in the classrooms and are committed to helping our students succeed.

Learn about grants awarded to the School of Education to further equip our teacher candidates for work in the education sector and to recruit and retain highly effective elementary and secondary education teachers, as well as resources for our alumni.

The reward is when our college students come back with stories of how they made a difference with their students because of what they learned here at CCU.

— Dr. Priscilla Wright, Professor of Education
