The School of Education & Social Services couples a transformative liberal arts tradition with highly specialized training in the education and social service fields.

One of the oldest Catholic universities in Florida, Saint Leo grounds each of its programs in the Benedictine values of intellectual curiosity and community-minded integrity. Nowhere is this commitment more embraced than at the School of Education & Social Services, where we work with the Center for Values, Service & Leadership to develop our students' appreciation for human dignity, and the complexity and diversity of society.

Through close faculty mentorships, field internships and applied learning experiences, we prepare students for careers in education, social work, criminal justice and human services.

Our professors remain active in their respective fields as researchers and practitioners, and their innovation earns Saint Leo industry-leading recognition. The Education department has been recently named a finalist for the Distinguished Program in Teacher Education Award. The University is now an approved educational partner by the FBI National Academy Associates. And our undergraduate social work program has been continuously accredited since 1983 by the Commission on Accreditation of the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE).

The School of Education & Social Services also understands the changing needs of today's students, so we provide options like evening and weekend courses, as well as online offerings.

Join us, and share in our vision of fostering the next generation of educators and social service specialists—a new breed of professional with the talent and resolve to make a difference.
