Deans Welcome

Thank you for your interest in Peru State College’s Future Teacher Scholarship. As Dean of the School of Education, it is my sincere privilege to share with you the various programs and learning experiences we provide to ensure students in Peru are highly engaged in a quality education that walks a path toward future success.

Presently, the School of Education provides teacher certification programs in early childhood, elementary education, middle-level education, secondary education, and special education. We also have a variety of field, subject, and supplemental endorsements available for you to consider. Peru State’s School of Education is a National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) accredited institution.

The faculty in the School of Education come with great experience and knowledgeable backgrounds.  Each faculty member seeks to help students become reflective learners, effective communicators, and active problem-solvers that are capable to enter the workforce with the appropriate technological fluency skills.  Choosing the School of Education at Peru State College, affords students the opportunity to not only learn course-based knowledge but also experience field-based practices providing exposure to area PK-12 classrooms.

Peru State College is a special place!  We provide the necessary individual attention to advise and mentor students along their educational journey, along with the many exciting aspects that come along with taking part in our programs. Your educational experience is important to us, and it is our goal to provide learning opportunities that are both fulfilling and rewarding. 

This full-tuition scholarship is a fantastic opportunity for future teachers like you! It’s time to learn more. I invite you to visit with the Office of Admissions by calling or requesting more information.
