Teacher Education Program Performance Data 

Mount St. Joseph University’s Teacher Education Program is accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) until Spring 2026 and by the Ohio Department of Education (ODE).

The School of Education offers accredited programs for Initial Licensure in the following areas:

  • Early Childhood Education (PK-5)
  • Middle Childhood Education (grades 4-9) – Mathematics, Science, English Language Arts, Social Studies
  • Adolescent Young Adult (grade 7-12) – Life Science, Chemistry, Integrated Science, Integrated Mathematics, Integrated Social Studies, and Integrated Language Arts
  • Special Education (K-12) – Mild/Moderate and Moderate/Intense
  • Art Education (K-12)
  • Music Education (K-12)

CAEP mandates that eight specific annual reporting measures be reported each year by educator preparation providers.  This reporting is meant to allow providers to routinely gather, analyze, and report critical data about their programs as one means for public accountability, transparency, and continuous improvement. The data encourage in-depth evaluation, self-interrogation, and reporting, and they are useful for both employers and prospective applicants.
