Teacher Preparation Programs With Certification


View the CAEP Annual Reporting Measures (PDF)


Spelman College’s educator preparation programs are accredited through the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) Accreditation System. The teacher preparation programs are also approved by the Georgia Professional Standards Commission (GAPSC). The national accreditation and state approvals recognize that our education programs have met national and state professional standards for the preparation of educators. In CAEP’s performance-based accreditation system, institutions must provide evidence of competent teacher candidate performance. Teacher candidates must know the subject matter they plan to teach and how to teach effectively so that all students learn.
