Top 10 Percent Nationally

Greetings from the Dean

Welcome to the Stout School of Education where expert faculty prepare teachers, principals, superintendents and executive educators for roles across the nation and internationally. The Stout School of Education is nationally accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation and is ranked in the top 10% of educator preparation programs by the National Council of Teacher Quality.

All of our programs are designed to provide scholars authentic experiences that not only prepare them for the future of learning but enable them to co-create it.  Faculty lean heavily on clinical experiences, simulations, experiential learning and problem based learning to provide scholars with opportunities to think deeply and reflect upon their practice.

In the Stout School of Education, scholars can choose from a variety of majors and minors including Education Studies, Elementary Education, Health and PE, Athletic Coaching, Middle or Secondary Education, Spanish Education and Special Education.  In addition to traditional Master of Arts and Master of Education degrees, High Point University also offers a unique BA to M.Ed. program that allows scholars to complete a bachelor’s and master’s degree within 5 years.

In 2012, the Stout School of Education launched High Point University’s first doctoral program.  Since its inception, the Education Doctorate (Ed.D.) in Education Leadership has produced numerous School Superintendents, Associate Superintendents, NC Department of Public Instruction executive leaders, and award winning educators.

Review our Strategic Plan 2021-2024 to learn more about the exciting innovations that will lead us to High Point University’s 2024 Centennial Celebration!

We invite you to come visit our faculty and explore all that the Stout School of Education has to offer!
