Dobbs Ferry, NY (PRWEB) June 22, 2014

Mercy College School of Education is the only institution in the nation to be awarded initial national accreditation by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) and its successor organization, the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP). The dual accreditation means that Mercy College has met two separate criteria simultaneously highlighting the Colleges top notch programs. NCATE and CAEP accreditation assures that students and faculty in these institutions are engaged in continuous improvement and maintain the highest professional standards.

Mercy College School of Education Dean Alfred Posamentier said: We are proud and delighted to have created such outstanding programs to prepare education professionals.

Along with the NCATE and CAEP accreditations, all of the School of Education masters degree education programs are nationally recognized by their respective professional associations.

NCATE/CAEP accreditation provides an important seal of approval for the Mercy College School of Education and related programs, and enhances our graduates credentials as teachers and school leaders.
