As a small liberal arts university, we're particularly proud to have achieved accreditation from the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE), which works to make a difference in the quality of teaching, teachers, school specialists and administrators in schools, colleges and departments of education.
NOTE: NCATE and the Teacher Education Accreditation Council consolidated to form the Council for Accreditation of Education Preparation
(CAEP). The School of Education has applied for initial accreditation through CAEP. We are in the process of completing our self-study and are scheduled for our accreditation site visit in October 2022. St. Bonaventure is preparing for CAEP accreditation review in 2022.
We're equally proud of our accreditation by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs
(CACREP) for entry-level programs in clinical mental health counseling and school counseling. CACREP accredits master's and doctoral degree programs in counseling at colleges and universities throughout the world, assuring they meet or exceed national standards.
