School of Education

Welcome to Avila University's School of Education

 

Our graduates are reflective teachers and advocates who impact a changing world. Over the past ten years, an average of 95% of our graduates were hired immediately and are currently working in school districts and agencies in the metropolitan area, across the nation and around the world. The School of Education has a reputation for graduating excellent teachers and advocates who are well prepared to teach and advocate for today's children and youth. Our comprehensive programs focus on content knowledge, research-based pedagogy and practical application through field-based and clinical experiences.

At Avila University, you will find small class sizes which allow more one-on-one attention from your professors, who are committed to helping you meet your professional goals. Once you graduate, you will be prepared to enter the workforce with the knowledge, skills and confidence necessary to employ the latest educational technologies with children and youth.

Within the School of Education we have a program for international students wishing to improve their English and cultural competency skills for matriculation into academic programs at the university.  The Intensive Language and Culture Program (ILCP) offers offers four levels of classes with entry points in the fall, spring, or summer semester.  Some ILCP students can enroll in selected academic courses with approval while they are studying ESL.
