Through a rigorous curriculum, engaging field experiences and a broad range of professional development services, students leave Grove City College equipped not only with the skills to be certified as teachers, but to be lifelong educators—in public and private schools, as well as in a host of non-traditional educational settings. While on campus, students take advantage of an on-site early education school and a state-of-the-art curriculum library.

Coupled with a focus on strong philosophical and ethical development, our students enjoy a solid liberal arts foundation while studying with faculty members who embody the mission of the College and excel in their particular fields. Whether interested in teaching young children or high school students in a traditional or non-traditional environment, the Department of Education has the resources to help students follow their calling.
