Congratulations BCF Teacher Education Faculty, Staff and Students.

The Baptist College of Florida (BCF) in Graceville has been identified as one of the top five schools in Florida that offers education degrees for students looking to become a teacher in the state. This was done through a ranking published by ToBecomeATeacher.org, a website that seeks to provide students with resources to help them navigate the educational and career hurdles required to achieve their vocational goals.

According to ToBecomeATeacher.org Editor Tim Charlet, “The rankings were factored by using a complex algorithmic tool along with supporting data provided from schools and other government agencies. The team at ToBecomeATeacher.org reviewed, tested and documented the top education programs available in the State of Florida for 2016.” Some of the testing criteria for consideration included expense, student to faculty ratio, graduation rate, return on investment and other analyzed data. The Baptist College of Florida received a top five overall ranking in the state by the team.

"Every school ToBecomeATeacher.org listed in our State of Florida review tool has committed themselves to the pursuit of excellence in the field of Education," stated Charlet. “The Baptist College of Florida is among the best in the entire state. We hope students and their families can utilize this data so they can make an informed decision as to which school is best suited for their individual needs and career aspirations."

“We are ecstatic to be ranked in the top 5 among all teacher education degrees in the state of Florida! I consider this quite an honor to be included with our larger state institutions,” stated BCF Chair of the Teacher Education Division Susan Wegmann. “For many years I have referred to The Baptist College of Florida as a ‘jewel in north Florida,’ and this ranking will help us tell others about the outstanding job our faculty do here. We spent countless hours getting state certified, and our Elementary Education students can now graduate with a Florida Professional Certificate of Teaching. This ranking, along with our state licensure tell a wonderful story about how The Baptist College of Florida is training future teachers with excellence!”
