This 30-credit hour degree is designed for elementary and secondary teachers or counselors seeking positions as school building administrators at some time in their careers (additional courses are required for district level certification).
Transformational change in a school begins with one person. Through St. Bonaventure’s Educational Leadership (EDL) program, that one person is you.
At St. Bonaventure, we understand that our world needs school and district leaders who are trained in critical reflection and are dedicated to improving opportunities for all students. Our program is more than a certificate or advanced degree – we empower future leaders through critical inquiry, reflection and dynamic leadership strategies.
We offer three school leadership programs to help you lead your school and inspire your students:
MSED in Educational Leadership (30 credits)
School Building Leader (SBL) Certificate (24 credits)
School District Leader (SDL) Certificate (12 credits)
We know the challenges of completing an advanced degree while balancing full time school work and home life. St. Bonaventure’s Educational Leadership Program offers two formats.
Courses are online, with three in-person Saturday sessions during the semester.
Fully Online Format
Courses are fully online, with opportunities to connect with your professor and class members virtually.
