We are in VA. D20 interested in Elementary Education.
UMW, CNU, W&M, Radford and Longwood on D20s list (based on stats and fit) - already accepted at UMW, Radford and Longwood - still waiting to hear from CNU (borderline match/reach) and W&M (reach school).
UMW currently a top pick; however, UMW is NOT CAEP accredited…only accredited by the Virginia Department of Education.
All others…W&M, CNU, Radford* and Longwood are all CAEP accredited.
*Radford University’s Teacher Preparation Programs are currently going through the process of obtaining accrediation through the CAEP.
So…what exactly are the pros/cons of graduating from a CAEP accredited school with a B.S.Ed. in Elementary Education and Teaching??
