The future of educational leadership

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: 

Instructional delivery that meets your needs

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.  

  • Hybrid Format
    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.
  • PLEASE NOTE: Applicants who do not hold a graduate degree are required to take a GRE or MAT test.
