E&H offers a nationally accredited teacher preparation program in twenty one endorsement areas approved by the Commonwealth of Virginia

The Emory & Henry Program is nationally accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP).  We offer initial licensure areas in two options, the undergraduate (4-year) and the Five-year (B.A. or B.S. plus M.A.Ed in Professional Studies).

We have a 100% pass rate on state required assessments for teacher licensure (i.e. Praxis I, Praxis II, RVE and VCLA) and a 100% graduation rate for all teaching candidates who are admitted into our program.  All admitted candidates earn endorsement to teach in the Commonwealth of Virginia.  82% of our graduates from the 2019-2020 academic year are working in the field of education during this academic year.
