Department of Education

St. Gregory’s Department of Education offers excellent preparation for those who desire to teach the next generation of students. Our accredited programs lead to bachelor’s degrees and initial licensure in Elementary or Secondary Education. Students who want to teach on the high school level will focus on Secondary Education and may choose to specialize in English, Biology, Mathematics or Social Studies. 

In addition to coursework, Education majors spend a considerable amount of time in actual elementary and secondary school classrooms. The culmination of each Education major’s training will be actual student teaching. Student teachers are placed in public and private schools in districts in and surrounding Shawnee and Oklahoma City. Mentored by a faculty supervisor and a cooperating teacher, the student teacher will apply the knowledge gained through coursework and field experiences to actual teaching.

Teacher education candidates' pass rate over the past three years on state certification exams is 84%. St. Gregory's currently has elementary and secondary teacher graduates employed in Arklahoma, Edmond, McLoud, Meeker, Midwest City, Oklahoma City, Norman, Putnam City, Shawnee, Tecumseh and Norman, in addition to Catholic schools throughout Oklahoma.
