Prepare to teach—prepare to make a difference

All children are sponges when it comes to learning, but children from PK to 3rd grade are especially so. They soak everything up, everything you put in front of them is something they learn from. What an honor, what a responsibility!

This academic program will prepare you to be an elementary educator. Faith is integrated through every step, so communication, compassion, and love will aid you in your fulfilling future career with children.. You’ll learn how to plan curriculum, instruction, and activities for young children, and how to use music, art, movement, and dramatic play to encourage creative expression and learning.
