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.
