A Passion for Teaching, Learning and Leadership

A 21st Century School of Education

For over 45 years, the Upper Valley Educators Institute has been a national leader in preparing adults for careers as teachers and school leaders.

The UVEI alternative principal and teacher certification model differs from a traditional school of education program by reversing the percentage of time traditionally allotted to academic theory and actual practice.

A focus on outcomes and the achievement of competencies - what an educator must know and be able to do - is at the heart of the UVEI approach.

Teacher interns spend 80% of their time in classrooms under the guidance of a master mentor teacher and a UVEI Faculty Coach.

The Principal Internship Program nurtures a new generation of school leaders, preparing them for roles that keep up with the dynamic changes in schools.

Through a partnership with the Upper Valley Graduate School of Education, interns may apply their UVEI experience towards a Masters Degree in Education or a Masters Degree in School Leadership.

UVEI prepares, inspires and supports K-12 teachers and school leaders to improve the quality of education for learners in their classrooms, schools and communities.
