Evening Degree Program Elementary Education

Elementary Education or Special Education

B.A. Degree in Elementary Education or Special Education

High Point University’s School of Education is approved by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) and the State Department of Public Instruction (SDPI). This approval guarantees teacher licensure for students who graduate and meet all requirements successfully.

Admittance to the Teacher Education Program is required usually by the end of the sophomore year and certain standards must be maintained once admitted.

In addition to the education courses required (some course work will be required during the day at the High Point Campus), courses in supporting disciplines such as fine arts, mathematics, science, and social studies must be taken. Some of these may fulfill General Education requirements. (cf. Undergraduate Bulletin).

Please note: The last semester of the Teacher Education Program must be completed during the day; during the spring you will do your student teaching full-time in a local school setting and take your senior seminar class during the day.

All students planning to major in education will be required to purchase a subscription to Foliotek data management program by the time they are admitted to the teacher education program in the sophomore year. Information about Foliotek can be found on the School of Education website (see undergraduate information).

As an Education major, if you enroll for more than 16 hours in a semester, you will be charged full-time Day School rates.
