Elementary Education

Elementary Education ​​​​​​​​​

​Studying elementary education at Grove City College prepares students to become leaders in the classroom—and in their profession at large. Students are equipped with the pedagogical, intellectual and professional tools they need to plan, assess and adapt instruction to elementary students in various ethnic settings and socio-economic groups, and with different learning styles and capabilities.

Elementary education students enjoy rigorous coursework preparation, as well as student teaching and field experiences. Additionally, students have access to the state-of-the-art curriculum library and can interact with young students at our on-campus early education center—two additional benefits to the elementary education program at Grove City College.
