YELLOW SPRINGS, OH–Antioch University Midwest is one of only six schools in the state–and the only school in the Miami Valley–that achieved 100 percent passage by its graduates of both the Ohio teacher and principal licensure exams.

This according to the Ohio Board of Regents (OBR) in its annual Educator Preparation Performance Reports for state and private colleges and universities.

“The Antioch University Midwest education program is accelerated–preparing its teachers in half the time of traditional 4 year colleges,” said Marian Glancy, Director of the School of Education. “Most if not all of the institutions in this report are traditional 4 or 5 year programs making Midwest’s accomplishment even more impressive.”

The OBR reports are compiled annually to benefit a variety of audiences including prospective students, parents, education advocates, and policy makers. College and university faculty and administration also use the data to the benefit of their programs.

“For those people who wish to pursue the privilege of becoming a teacher, Antioch University Midwest is their best bet,” said President Karen Schuster Webb.
