Assessment and Accreditation

The educator preparation program at the College of Charleston has been accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) since 1999. In 2010, NCATE and Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC) formed as the new accrediting body, CAEP. CAEP accreditation standards were fully implemented in 2016. The College of Charleston’s initial and advanced teacher education programs completed an accreditation review in 2020 by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP).
