Catholic Educational Leadership Certificate

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: School of Education

The Certificate of Advanced Study in Catholic Educational Leadership is a 15-unit program specifically designed for Catholic school leaders who already have a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited institution of higher education. Those whose degree is in educational administration from a secular university would gain a distinctly Catholic perspective. Those whose bachelor’s degree is in a subject area other than educational administration would receive preparation in essential areas of educational administration within a Catholic school context.

Program Learning Outcomes

  • Students will be able to communicate the vision, mission, and values of Catholic education to the various stakeholders of their schools.
  • Students will engage self and others in spiritual discernment and the process of reflection and personal faith development.
  • Students will be able to develop and evaluate school wide improvement plans rooted in current research and best practices in Catholic education that reflect transformational leadership with a personal and professional commitment to liberation, equity and inclusion.
  • Students will apply Gospel values with their school communities, demonstrate a knowledge of Catholic social teaching and the promotion of justice, and will integrate cura personalis (care for the person) in their relationships with stakeholders.
  • As leaders in Catholic institutions students will be able to engage current political and social reality as a core text.  Students will be able to demonstrate an understanding of strategies for acting in solidarity with communities locally and globally, especially historically marginalized groups.
