CVCC Starts New Internet-Based Program

Educator preparation program helps future teachers


Catawba Valley Community College began a new Internet-based program this week.

The education preparation program (or EPP) is called “Cultivating Carolina Classrooms.” This three-semester program, featuring seven classes available over the Internet, is part of CVCC’s existing early childhood and teacher preparation curriculum programs. It is offered through the college’s school of community development and public services education.

This EPP offers a pathway to elementary education licensing for teachers who are currently working in kindergarten through the sixth grade and who have completed a non-education-related bachelor’s degree and have obtained a position in a school system that requires a teaching license. The program starts in August.

For more information about CVCC’s “Cultivating Carolina Classrooms” educator preparation program or to learn more about the early childhood and teacher preparation programs that are available at the college, contact Andra Ingle by e-mail or telephone respectively at [email protected] or (828) 327-7000, extension 4515.
