National Accreditation Advantage

The Esteves School of Education has held continuous accreditation from the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education, now known as the Council for Accreditation of Education Preparation, since 2001. CAEP accreditation means that graduates complete an education program that meets the highest standards in the field. Sage graduates should note the Esteves School of Education’s CAEP accreditation on their resumes and be prepared to talk about its significance.

Across the nation, relatively few private colleges can claim this level of excellence in teacher education programs.

CAEP is recognized throughout the nation. Graduates of CAEP accredited programs can more easily receive certification and teaching jobs in other states.
