Candidate Performance Data

The Mercy College School of Education offers innovative, flexible and accessible programs of study for teacher candidates at initial and/or advanced levels in Childhood, Early Childhood, Secondary, Multilingual, Literacy, and Special Education and a program in Educational Leadership for candidates seeking to become school building leaders.
