With a "Race to the Top" grant Mercy College developed a groundbreaking partnership with the Yonkers Public Schools to provide a full year of clinical experience in K-12 classrooms for graduate Education Math majors. Students take 45 graduate credits at Mercy and are also paired with a Yonkers master teacher - ending with a master’s degree in secondary math education and certification in math and special education. A win-win model for the future.

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.
