Saint Martin’s School Administration Certification
Program provides future educational leaders with a flexible route to
becoming a school principal or program administrator. The program is
designed for individuals who have earned an undergraduate degree from an
accredited college or university and have three years of professionally
oriented work experience in an educational setting. Options are
available for candidates to enroll in the Master in Education and
certification program or to enroll in the certification only program if
they already have earned a Master’s degree.
“This fully accredited program is ideal for people
who are looking to progress in their careers and take on the
opportunities and unique challenges of administering schools and
programs in our school system,” explains Mark Haddock, Ph.D., program
director and faculty member in the University’s College of Education.
After an intensive summer academy and/or just one
year of courses, students are typically ready to enter their year-long
administrative internship in an approved school setting. The program
includes accredited professional standards coursework that is offered
evenings, weekends and summers and a supervised internship to assure
Washington state certification.
The information sessions will address entry
requirements, program details, required classes and internships,
financial information and administrator certification. Applications for
the school administration program are being accepted now and will be
considered in the order received. Most participants may begin classes
during the summer 2010 sessions.
