School of Education

The School of Education equips students to serve Christ as educators whether it be in traditional classrooms, in home schooling, as tutors, or in many other unique learning environments.



True education reproduces the mind of Christ in the life of the believer because it is based on the Word of God. Crown College is committed to training Christian educators who know God and His Word, who will be academically and skillfully prepared, exerting godly influence upon the generation to come.

This 4-year program focuses on teaching as a ministry and not just as a profession. It will equip you with the knowledge and skill required to effectively serve Christ whether it be in a traditional classroom setting, in a home school or tutoring environment, at home or anywhere in the world.

The School of Education equips students to…

  • Articulate the Scriptural mandate for Christ-centered, biblically based education.
  • Utilize pedagogically sound practices in any educational setting with the proper application of assessment and educational technology.
  • Broaden critical thinking and communication skills in order to adapt to various learning environments.
  • Adapt curriculum to meet the needs of diverse learners using appropriate teaching methods.
  • Employ effective classroom management techniques to foster a healthy and positive learning environment.
  • Demonstrate Christ-like character and professional disposition.
  • Apply knowledge, skills, and methodology through a rigorous teaching internship in a structured, established environment.

Brandon Johnson

3rd grade teacher in Greenville, S.C.

Once I began teaching, I realized that the overall knowledge, training and preparation I received were top-notch. I would not be the teacher I am today if it were not for Crowns elementary education program.
