Our Mission

“The overall goal or outcome of the Keeran School of Education is to produce teachers who are empowered to 1) access students, 2) analyze content, 3) plan instruction, 4) implement instruction and 5) evaluate instruction and learning. Graduates are expected to be life-long learners and role models in professional and social communities.”


 

Welcome to the Keeran School of Education at Kentucky Christian University. As you visit our pages we hope that you will sense the dedication and purpose of our faculty, staff, and students. Most teachers were inspired by a mentor or great example of an educator. We want our students to be that kind of teacher. There is rigorous preparation for the changing tasks of education and our students are highly sought after in the communities around us. To accomplish this readiness our student have extensive practice teaching, assessment design, and professional development. It is our mission to develop good teachers who have a heart for children and a desire to help every child grow.

Accreditation and Recognition

The Keeran School of Education is accredited by the Kentucky Education Professional Standards Board to offer approved teacher preparation programs.

KSE is a recognized leader in Northeastern Kentucky areas. The school draws students from many states as well as a number of international students. One of the success stories of KSE is the number of K-12 educators who are still in Education. In a recent survey 70% responded that they still work in the education field, this is far above the national average. Just in Carter County 43 graduates work in the school system. Considering the close proximity of Ohio and West Virginia that number would increase dramatically.

Well Equipped

“I look back at my four years at Kentucky Christian University often and fondly. The classes were relevant, the professors were genuine, and the campus was focused on the schools mission: Christ, Character, Career. I was well equipped to minister to and lead worship in the hundreds of congregations we visit each year as the band “64 to Grayson”. If I went back and was faced with the choice to go to KCU again, I would do it in a heartbeat.”
