Founders Day- Education

Train the Next Generation of Teachers

Goal: 7,000

Teachers change the lives of our young people every day. They are responsible for awakening joy in knowledge and creative expression. Through your support of the Education Department, you will equip the next generation of Belmont Abbey teachers to be the inspiring light that will ignite the hearts and minds of our young people to live a life of love and truth.

This Founders’ Day, the Education Department at Belmont Abbey College is fundraising to establishing a Teacher Education Resource Center. This Center will be the central location where our teachers-in-training can meet informally, work on projects, prepare materials for field experiences, and study for teacher licensure exams.

The Center is critical for our students who are in our Professional Sequence and have met state requirements for acceptance into the formal portion of teacher preparation.

The resources needed to start the Center including pertinent journal subscriptions to be read and used for professional growth by our students, a laminator, a dye-cut machine, and study guides for all the testing required of new teachers.

Your gift, of any amount, will go toward establishing the Teacher Education Resource Center and preparing the next generation of Belmont Abbey teachers.

And, as a special thank you during the Founders’ Day Challenge, each donation of $5 or more will get a special Belmont Abbey Gift!

“From my first education class as a freshman, to beginning the professional sequence, the professors have supported me and helped me grow. I enjoy the small classes that are personalized to the content I want to study to prepare for my future classroom. The program has challenged me to grow outside my comfort zone and feel confident in my teaching abilities.”
