From a university with impressive credentials related to charter schools and preparing educational leaders, you can now earn a graduate certificate in charter school administration—in an online, accelerated format that you can complete in just two semesters.
Our certificate’s curriculum is based on what you and your school need, not just theory and guesses. Before launching our certificate, we surveyed charter school leaders to see what would help them most with daily operations and long-term needs. The result is a program acknowledging that the role of a charter school principal is comparable to the role of a public school superintendent.
We understand that you may have special challenges working with underserved or underprivileged populations, and that you need superior skills in evaluating and supervising teachers, implementing and evaluating curriculum, civil rights and disability regulations, educational law, facilities requirements, and the business side of running a school.
