Viterbo University enjoys a rich history of education

Viterbo University's School of Education prepares educators who are grounded in Franciscan values and possess the knowledge and skills to be reflective decision makers for the 21st century.  


Educating teachers was part of the original mission in 1890 and now, more than a century later, that hasn’t changed. Good teaching, and our commitment to it, remains constant. Whether students are seeking initial licensure, a graduate degree, early childhood, reading, or perhaps principalship, Viterbo’s nationally accredited teacher education programs prepare them for life in the classroom. Viterbo University is a charter member of NCATE (since its inception in 1954) and has been continuously accredited to date. Each year, over 500 teachers receive degrees or licensure certification from Viterbo.
