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.

Mission Statement

“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.”

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.

Discover Your Path

“The Humanities Department opened its doors right around the time where I was caught in a bit of a personal dilemma. I was studying music, but really wanted to further my studies in film through an internship in Los Angeles. The department was made for someone like me, who was trying to navigate a lot of artistic interests and find the career path buried in the middle of all of them. That internship changed my life and the KCU Humanities Department made it not only possible, but easy to follow my heart.”
