Bronx Parent Center

The Bronx Parent Center was launched in October 2012 in an effort to get parents in the Bronx more involved in their children's education. The Center seeks to give parents the knowledge and skills they need to become active participants in their children's education.

We are proud to announce that the Mercy College School of Education is the first institution in the United States to be awarded initial national accreditation by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) and its successor organization, the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Professionals (CAEP). In addition, all of our master's degree education programs in Childhood, Early Childhood, Secondary Education (English, Mathematics, Science (Biology) and Social Studies), TESOL, Literacy and School Leadership are nationally recognized by their professional associations. National accreditation provides a seal of approval for Mercy and enhances our graduates' credentials when seeking employment. Learn more.

The Mercy College School of Education is now offering test preparation workshops for certification tests. We currently offer three-hour overview workshops on the Educating All Students (EAS) test, the Academic Skills Literacy Test (ALST) and the Content Specialty Test (CST), for Early Childhood, Childhood and Students with Disabilities. Students have found these workshops very helpful for passing the exams. 

The cost for these workshops is $30. To register and pay, please go to: https://commerce.cashnet. com/mercy_testprep

The School of Education recommends that teacher candidates take the tests according to the following schedule:

  • ALST - 12 credits
  • EAS - 24 credits
