Educational Administration offers several pathways to meet the needs of emerging leaders in K-12 schools and educational non-profits. Designed for part-time students who are working professionals, our program attracts aspiring administrators who are passionate about making a difference in pursuit of excellence for students, staff, and schools. EDAD programs lead to either a Washington State principal certificate or program administrator certificate and/or a Masters in Educational Administration and Leadership (M.Ed).
All EDAD students participate in an extensive yearlong leadership. The program works in partnership with the district, school or organization in which interns work to ensure high quality, rigorous field experiences. Further, we work closely with each candidate’s district/school/organization to facilitate the best possible intern placements and mentorships.
In addition, over the course of their study, EDAD students are asked to explore settings beyond their workplace through alternate site visits and summer field work that explores the critical impact and importance of schools’ community engagement and partnership.
