- Sage is one of only 45 colleges and universities in New York State to receive prestigious NCATE/CAEP accreditation. Across the nation, relatively few private colleges can claim this level of excellence in teach education programs.
- The NCATE/CAEP accreditation process helped articulate what qualities a Sage educator, counselor, or leader possesses: belief in full inclusion, valuing diversity, reflection, and knowledge about best practices. NCATE/CAEP accreditation is a mark of assurance that teachers, counselors, and leaders educated at Sage are competent, caring, and highly qualified.
- NCATE/CAEP accreditation means that Sage graduates are better prepared to help their students reach high standards.
- Graduates of NCATE/CAEP accredited programs can more easily receive certification and teaching jobs in other states; NCATE/CAEP is recognized throughout the nation.
