The Springfield College Secondary Education Program provides future teachers with the proficiencies and confidence needed to connect with every student. Graduates successfully secure employment to teach in a wide range of settings, including in urban, suburban, and rural areas. Graduates of the program leave Springfield College prepared and ready to lead classrooms of students grades 5-8 or 8-12.

Preparation for becoming secondary teachers begins early in a student’s undergraduate career. Springfield College partners with area middle and high schools, providing students with hands-on learning opportunities as early as their first year.

As part of child growth and development coursework, prospective teachers work with students from one of our partner schools each week. Working in pairs, they prepare and lead lessons and coach students. The early field based experiences with students continues each year through year four, at which time they begin student teaching.
