Elementary Education Program: St. Scholastica at ICC

May 10, 2021

The College of St. Scholastica announces the launch of an Elementary Education Degree Completion program at Itasca Community College (ICC). This bachelor of science degree will provide students with the knowledge, skills and disposition required to be successful in a variety of elementary education settings.

The program will be offered in a blended format of online and in-person courses two evenings per week and one Saturday per month. Additionally, the program will allow students the opportunity to gain valuable in-classroom experience beginning their first semester.

Through the articulation between ICC’s Class Act Pre-Education Program and St. Scholastica, students are able to seamlessly transfer and complete their bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education in two years if all prerequisites are met.

"I was blessed to be a part of The College of St. Scholastica community," said Taylor Mundis. "I gained great career experience in my field while getting taught by hospitable and caring professors. I am grateful to have received my teaching education from St. Scholastica."
The Elementary Education Degree Completion program has been offered by the College since 2014 and courses are taught by qualified local instructors with classroom experience. At $425 per credit, the program is highly affordable.
