Leadership for Faith-Based Schools

Have you ever wished that you could find a graduate program that specifically targets what you can be doing as a spiritual, educational and institutional leader in faith-based schools? Are you seeking a program that aims to look through the eyes and heart of Jesus and focuses on truly spiritual Christian schooling? Do you have a desire to invest your time in fellowship with like-minded and spiritually-guided students and professors?

The Masters of Science in Education program with a specialization in Educational Leadership for Faith-Based Institutions fulfills each of these desires as it prepares students for a future in faith-based education.

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 camaraderie between students, faith-focused curriculum, experienced professors, and fellowship with the Holy Spirit make participation in this program a unique experience.

Kienel, President Emeritus, Association of Christian Schools International and Jerry Haddock, former Southern California ACSI Regional Director.
