About the School

Teach one child, touch one life, and you touch a whole community.

At the Cal Lutheran Graduate School of Education, you will turn theory into practice, learn one-on-one with experienced faculty, and collaborate with public, private, and charter schools—from kindergarten through higher education—as well as other community-minded organizations.

You will pursue your purpose through both experiential instruction and personal growth in an environment dedicated to introspection and exploration, preparing you as an innovative, transformative leader.

The quality of your education is ensured by our accreditation approved by the Commission on Teacher Credentialing.


The Graduate School of Education credentialing program is accreditated by The Commission on Teacher Credentialing Commission on Teacher Credentialing
