Calvin's Education Program is approved by the Michigan Department of Education and accredited by the Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC).

In 2013, TEAC was consolidated into a new national accreditating agency: the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP). Calvin will be considered for CAEP accreditation in 2017.

The accreditation process establishes rigorous standards for educator preparation programs, holds accredited institutions accountable for providing evidence of meeting these standards, and encourages institutions to demonstrate the quality of their programs by working for and achieving professional accreditation.
