Master of Education in Educational Leadership (Catholic School Leadership Program)

In partnership with the Office of Catholic Schools of the Diocese of Honolulu, Chaminade's Education Division offers a leadership program for Catholic school principals, educational administrators, or teachers aspiring to administrative roles. The Catholic School Leadership Program is designed to ground administrators and teachers in a philosophy of education rooted in the Catholic understanding of the human person and the human community before God. It draws from historical and contemporary Catholic and non-Catholic thought to help the student shape a coherent understanding of the vocation of Catholic schools for the Church and the wider society. Second, the program trains students in the skills of good school leadership. Courses in the program address the general issues of contemporary educational leadership and the more specific issues facing Catholic education in the United States today.

This is a cohort program and admission is offered biannually for each new cohort. The next intake is tentatively scheduled for January, 2013. When a new cohort is authorized, all Catholic school principals are notified of a request for new candidates for this program.

In this cohort program degree candidates generally take all courses together in sequence, one course per term.
