NCATE Accreditation Renewed
Education Department reviewed by NCATE
“Having our national accreditation renewed assures that we are graduating quality teachers who are prepared to move directly into the classroom,” said Wheeler. “This accreditation renewal marks another milestone in our continuing effort to provide an excellent education.”
York College first received NCATE accreditation in 2005. “NCATE is the highest standard for the preparation of classroom teachers,” said President Steve Eckman. “Education is one of our biggest majors at York College and certainly one of the best. We place our students in the classroom from their freshmen year so they have plenty of experience prior to student teaching.”
Being an NCATE accredited institution offers certain advantages to graduates. “When students go to another state to apply for certification to teach, it helps them to come from an NCATE institution,” remarked Wheeler.
The next NCATE review is anticipated in seven years.
