Accreditation Information


The Curry MT program aims to prepare teachers who exemplify best practices in connecting content, practice and research to foster academic, social, and emotional development in students with diverse backgrounds and diverse needs.  Our graduates use data and reflection in their instructional decision-making so that their impact on student learning is meaningful and measurable.  It is awarded TEAC accreditation by the Inquiry Brief Commission of the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) for a period of seven years, from April, 2015 and April, 2022.  The accreditation does not include individual education courses that the EPP offers to P-12 educators for professional development, re-licensure, or other purposes.
