Quincy University's Elementary Education program is centered on providing you real-world experience in elementary classrooms. Quincy's Professional Development School (PDS) model will place you in a local school during your first education course, providing you with opportunities that bring to life the topics you're learning about in textbooks. Rooted in years of educational research, the PDS approach provides early and consistent exposure to a wide range of professional activities that build proficiency and leadership long before the first day of student teaching.
Our courses are taught by experienced educators who are dedicated to mentoring the teachers of the future. The result? Quincy graduates enter their first jobs with exceptional preparation for the challenges of contemporary education.
