Explore two leadership pathways designed to build the next cadre of teacher leaders and formal leaders for Massachusetts schools.
Our one-year option is a teacher leadership graduate certificate designed to support current and future teacher leaders (e.g., team leaders, specialists, department heads, instructional coaches, curriculum leaders, teacher mentors, and those aspiring to such roles). Participants engage in a one-year, four-course sequence with additional electives available depending on participants' specific career interests.
Our two-year option is a full 36-credit degree program leading toward licensure as an assistant principal/principal in the state of Massachusetts. The Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study (CAGS) is for licensed educators who already hold a master's degree, and participants in this two-year program earn the teacher leadership certificate (described above) after the first year of the CAGS program.
