Graduate Success

Education faculty work closely with their students, assessing their individual strengths and weaknesses, and making sure that they are achieving at their full potential. From the first year on, each student's academic advisor works with him or her to select a course of study that provides solid preparation for field practice, student teaching, and professional teaching positions.

Recent Lebanon Valley College education graduates are working as teachers (in a variety of disciplines), group supervisors, private tutors, program managers and assistants, principals and other school administrators at public and private school districts, early learning centers, and children and youth organizations across the United States and abroad. Select employers include Teach for America (MS), National Park School (NJ), Manheim Christian Day School, Goddard School, Caroline County Public Schools (MD), Borger Independent School District (TX), and Flood Brook School (VT). Other graduates have opted to pursue graduate level programs in educational classroom technology, literacy education, music education, science education, and school leadership among others. 

Lebanon Valley College's teacher preparation reputation is well-known. In fact, the department has been recognized by the National Council on Teacher Quality for being ranked nationally for two consecutive years for its undergraduate secondary teacher prep program: bachelor of arts in English with secondary education certification.
