School of Education

At Simpson University, we believe the mission of education is to provide visionary leadership: a call for both educators and students to become what they are capable of becoming, allowing them to create the future they imagine. Whether you’re looking to enhance your mastery in the classroom, or move into leadership or administration fields, we’ll provide the tools that will allow you to confidently pursue your passion, while adequately preparing you to meet the challenges of today’s educational system.

Welcome to Simpson University’s School of Education website. Simpson University is a Christ-centered learning community. Our School of Education program is committed to equipping men and women to become highly effective teachers and administrators. Experienced faculty help guide our students to be professional in their actions, ethical, and morally responsible leaders who motivate, inspire, and excel in their ability to educate students and transform communities.

Throughout our programs, courses incorporate innovative researched based practices such as Restorative Justice, Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS), Universal Design for Learning and Cognitive Coaching to prepare our students to meet the needs of the diverse California demographic where all students deserve to learn, irrespective of race, ethnicity, gender, or socio- economic status.

All credential programs at Simpson University’s School of Education include a purposeful, interrelated, developmentally- designed sequence of coursework and field experiences. Additionally, our programs include a well-planned process for comprehensive assessment of candidates that effectively prepare all teacher and administrative candidates to teach and to lead effectively in California public schools and beyond, taking into account the contemporary conditions of schooling, teaching, and learning with a particular focus on California public schools.

We believe that our candidates are in pursuit of a worthy and noble calling and the School of Education is committed to supporting each candidate in reaching their goals. We partner with highly trained educators whose expertise and guidance are crucial elements in developing the professional skill set of our candidates. Our faculty and program supervisors provide a wealth of professional educational experience and extensive understanding of the necessary pedagogy required to become a successful educator.
