About Our Professional Development School (PDS) Programs

The program has been designed to create learning communities that function as collaborative partnerships between a school/school district and Centenary University. In doing so, the program offers win-win-win opportunities for P-12 learners, pre-service teachers, and in-service teachers.

Centenary University is actively engaged in the national movement promoting Professional Development School (PDS) collaboration, and is continuing to encourage and promote relationships that will help ensure quality field placements for our student teacher interns and on-going professional growth of educators.
