“Castleton allowed me to complete my degree in two years with a schedule that was flexible and accommodating to my teaching position."
The Castleton Master of Arts in Educational Leadership is a 36-credit, field-based, principal licensure and master's degree program that combines face-to-face residencies with convenient online coursework. Assignments are supported by relevant and enriching readings and a closely supervised, project to effect change in the candidate’s resident school.
Exemplary educational leaders work in partnership with their school’s faculty and administration to create a learning environment that allow students to recognize their full potential as citizens in a complex and changing global world.
This program is approved for licensure by the Vermont Agency of Education's Program Review Team and is framed by both the Core Leadership Standards for Vermont Educators and the Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium (ISLLC) Standards for School Leaders. In addition, through the Mediated Achievement Plan (see EDU 6815), prospective candidates will be assured of meeting the 300-hour internship required by the state.
