Middle Childhood Education at John Carroll University
Guiding the Way
Our Middle Childhood program will empower you to teach students in grades 4th to 9th and ages 9 through 14.
This is a time filled with incredible growth, insecurity, and emotional and physical change. Through JCU’s program, you’ll be better prepared to teach, support, and guide your students with wisdom. Our whole-student philosophy promotes greater understanding, our liberal arts education hones critical thinking, and our Jesuit values strengthen your sense of justice and advocacy.
As you deepen your teaching, theoretical and practical knowledge, you’ll also gain real-world, professional experience in a Cleveland area middle school.
On commencement, you’ll be a licensed Middle Childhood Educator and completely ready to step into your classroom and make a difference in the lives of your students.
