The National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) is the profession’s mechanism to help establish high quality teacher preparation. Through the process of professional accreditation of schools, colleges and departments of education, NCATE works to make a difference in the quality of teaching and teacher preparation today, tomorrow, and for the next century. NCATE’s performance-based system of accreditation fosters competent classroom teachers and other educators who work to improve the education of all P-12 students. NCATE believes every student deserves a caring, competent, and highly qualified teacher.
Currently, 656 institutions are accredited and nearly 70 others are candidates and pre-candidates for accreditation. The number of candidates for accreditation has almost tripled in the past five years, due to the growing demand for accountability from states and the public, and the number of accredited institutions has risen steadily.
As a nationally recognized standard of excellence, NCATE accreditation assures that LeMoyne-Owen College has met the rigorous standards set forth by the profession to include:
- Candidate Knowledge, Skills, and Professional Dispositions
- Assessment System and Unit Evaluation
- Field Experiences and Clinical Practice
- Faculty Qualifications, Performance, and Development
- Unit Governance and Resources
