The Teacher Education Program at Calvin College is accredited by the State of Michigan and is a candidate member in good standing of the Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC).
Calvin's excellence in teacher preparation was recognized by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) for over 40 years.
In 2008, faculty members concluded that the TEAC accreditation process is better aligned with Calvin's program structure and philosophy of teacher education. Therefore, we are currently in the process of transferring our national program accreditation from NCATE to TEAC. The TEAC site visit is scheduled for November 13-14, 2012.
