Northern Arizona University is proud to be the first and remains the only institution of higher education in Arizona to attain national accreditation from the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (now CAEP).
NAU offers nationally recognized professional education programs for teacher certification at the early childhood, elementary, and secondary levels, as well as in special education. NAU also offers advanced teacher education programs along with nationally recognized or accredited certification programs for principals, superintendents, school counselors, school psychologists, and school speech pathologists.
Northern Arizona University partners with CAEP and Specialized Professional Associations to make a difference in the quality of teaching and teacher preparation today, tomorrow, and for the next century. CAEP’s performance-based system of accreditation fosters competent classroom teachers and other educators who work to improve the education of all P-12 students. Our education faculty members believe every student deserves a caring, competent, and highly qualified teacher.
