Elementary school is an extremely important time of learning and growth for young children. If you are interested in working with children and have a passion for facilitating learning, a degree in Elementary Education may be the right path for you!

The Elementary Education program is designed to prepare students for a teaching career in grades K through sixth grade. The School of Education collaborates with area schools to provide students with observation and teaching experiences to enhance their learning. Students' education experience will culminate in student teaching or enrolling in the fifth-year master’s for a year-long internship.

What our students say

"I was drawn to Trevecca's School of Education because of their clear mission: "It is the mission of the School of Education to model competence, character, and compassion so that our students embrace and emulate these qualities in service and leadership." As a teacher, I feel a responsibility and privilege to be a role model and empower my students toward excellence. Trevecca emphasizes both of these goals in their program, focusing on raising up teachers holistically to be leaders in their field. I am proud to be a Trevecca graduate, and look forward to the next steps in my career."

"Trevecca's School of Education faculty did more than prepare me for my professional career; they also made it a point to teach me and my classmates how to be Christian teachers in a field filled with young people who are starving for positive role models. The success I enjoyed this past school year had a lot to do with the instruction that Trevecca provided and the relationships with faculty members that are still a part of my life."

"I have been shaped into the teacher I am today because of the amazing professors in the School of Education at Trevecca. Each professor took time out of his/her day to get to know me individually. If something ever came up in my life my professors were interested in knowing about it. The professors guided, directed, and prayed for me throughout my four years in college. Their prayers for me and caring nature are more than I could ever ask for in a university staff. I am thankful for their love and support and still keep in contact with them to this day."
