Strong school leaders, from principals to administrative staff, are the driving force behind outstanding schools. Such leaders are centered on children, clear in their moral purpose, and collaborative in their relationships. Together with their staffs, they are able to create and sustain a school structure that is effective, and a learning environment that is conducive to student and adult growth.
Throughout our School Leadership concentration, graduate students have opportunities to work individually and with colleagues, both in the classroom and in the field, to explore concepts while acquiring and applying their skills. Our program offers a blend of required and elective courses, giving each student a meaningful and lasting educational experience upon which s/he can draw when actively engaged in the science and art of leading a school.
In addition, our students have the opportunity to obtain Vermont endorsement for School Principal, Director of Curriculum, or Director of Special Education through our program. Must have a Master's in Education.
