Early Childhood Education State of Georgia/NCATE Certification available through Spelman College. Although this program is administered at Spelman College, all Morehouse College students who wish to become early childhood certified teachers must first apply to the Center for Teacher Preparation at Morehouse.

The Center’s director or appropriate other will conduct an initial interview with the applicant and establish a student file and permanent data base. The purpose of this file is to facilitate general academic advisement and continued oversight of the Morehouse College student throughout his program sequence at Spelman.

All early childhood certification students must formally apply to Spelman college education department for official admission to the teacher certification program during their first year of education courses and before being permitted to register for second year teacher education courses.

At the time of application, students must have a minimum 2.5 grade point average, post a passing score on the new GACE 1 test or have posted a minimum 1,000 on the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT), a 43 combined composite score on the ACT, or a 1030 on the Graduate Records Exam (GRE).
