NCATE & the Accreditation Process

NCATE/CAEP Accreditation & Program Approval

The Faculty of the Isabelle Farrington College of Education at Sacred Heart University engage in preparing men and women to live in and make their contributions to the human community. Our primary purpose is to develop the capacities, talents and abilities of our teacher candidates through an integration of theory and practice in a performance-based program. Our teacher candidates possess the knowledge, skills, and dispositions to facilitate the learning of all children.

The Farrington College of Education is committed to achieving the highest regional and national standards for educator preparation. 

As of July 1, 2013, NCATE has  been  incorporated within the Council for the Accreditation of  Educator Preparation (CAEP), which is now the sole national specialized accreditor for teacher preparation.
