Dr. Bonnie G. Metcalf School of Education


Leadership for Faith-Based Schools

Have you ever wished that you could find a graduate program that specifically targets what you can and should be doing as a spiritual, educational and institutional leader in administration in faith-based schools? Are you seeking a program that aims to look through the eyes and heart of Jesus while using the best Christian and ACSI texts as well as the best common, secular ones - a program that is focused uniquely on truly spiritual and Christian schooling?

Would you like to invest your time in a fellowship which is made up of like-minded and spiritually-guided students and which is taught by professors who have been in your shoes and who are also conversant with a broad range of educational theory and practice and who aim to bring every educational thought and practice captive to Christ for God’s glory?

Would you like the convenience of distance learning during the school year combined with personal, on-site, fellowship for two weeks during the summer?

Then you will want to know more about California Baptist University’s Master’s of Science in Education with a specialization in Educational Leadership for Faith-Based Schools program.

The program schedule is a mixture of intense, summer on-site courses combined with distance learning courses during fall and spring semesters. The program’s distance learning component leverages the latest technologies, such as group web video displays and presentations with simultaneous group interactive audio, and asynchronous Web sharing and evaluation of work and products within your group, to ensure a high quality educational experience.

The Christian school focus of the curriculum, the practical leadership experience of your professors, the opportunity to network and create community with fellow students also serving as faith-based school leaders and educators, and the teaching ministry and fellowship of the Holy Spirit make participation in this program a unique educational experience.

Please feel free to peruse this site for more information and testimonials from program graduates as well as endorsements from Dr. Paul A. Kienel, President Emeritus, Association of Christian Schools International and Jerry Haddock, former Southern California ACSI Regional Director. Please prayerfully consider what you read and see and feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

Yours in the Lord,
