The Education Division prepares authentic, knowledgeable, and exemplary school professionals by encouraging inquiry, analysis, creativity, and Christian values. To that end, studies are related to skills, knowledge, values, ethics, and professional standards.
The K-12 Educational Leadership program is committed to excellence in preparing educational leaders. The program provides integrated, rigorous preparation for educational leaders who study on a part-time basis. The courses are designed to support you in your efforts to think systematically about practice, learn from experience, seek the advice of others, draw upon educational research and scholarship, and actively seek out opportunities to grow professionally.
